How the EU works
23 March 2017 | by beormasSee all my reviews

Decisionmaking in the EU is a complicated process. The Commission prepares a proposal, the Parliament and and the Council have to agree to it. If they don't, they can make changes, until both can agree. This documentary shows how it worked for the data protection directive, focusing on the Parliament, it shows the difficulty of finding a compromise, lobbyists trying to get their interests to be included in the directive and the "hero" of the story, a member of parliament trying to coordinate all this and come up with a proposal that will get a majority.

Watching this will help you understand how the EU works, 89 minutes well spent.
