IEU Monitoring during the summer break: weekly summaries each Friday

Dear Reader,

During the rest of August, we expect less EU documents to be published by the European institutions. Therefore, the IEU Monitoring is switching to weekly summaries of EU documents, from August 13 - 24, 2018, published each Friday (August 17 and 24).

Nevertheless, we are in alert mode in case of unexpected events comping up and will keep you up-to-date.

Enjoy reading - but also enjoy your summer vacation.
