The House of European History opens its doors next week, while MEPs are set to discuss the EU’s blacklist of countries at risk of money laundering, regulating private security companies and more during committee meetings.
EU lawmakers will review for a second time an EU blacklist of countries at risk of facilitating money laundering: they say the list is too short, and should include tax havens, like Panama. States are increasingly turning towards private companies to deal with armed conflict and security. MEPs will look into how to boost oversight and hold all actors accountable. Spearheaded by the Parliament, the world's first multi-lingual museum on recent European history will be opening its doors next week. The House in Brussels will look at the tumultuous 20th century. How to encourage the collaborative economy while also making sure it follows the rules? MEPs will debate how to regulate platforms like Airbnb and Uber ahead of a full-house vote in mid-May.
