The role of independent expertise in legislative process
Testimony before the European Parliament Committee on the Internal Market and Consumer Protection (IMCO).
On 10 July 2018, J. Scott Marcus and Zsolt Darvas testified before the European Parliament Committee on the Internal Market and Consumer Protection (IMCO).
This workshop dealt with the benefits to the Parliament of having independent experts providing analysis. During this session, J. Scott Marcus made two interventions, one about studies of ICT policy issues in general, the other on analysis of the impact of Brexit. Meanwhile, Zsolt Darvas spoke of the social impact of the austerity measures that have been undertaken. Both insist on reinforcing the notion that objective, fact-based analysis has high value in the legislative process.
