European Parliament Office in France

As an extension for France of the European Parliament Directorate General for Communication, the mission our office is to raise awareness of the European Parliament (EP) and the EU generally, and to encourage citizens to vote in European parliamentary elections. We provide visibility to MEPs’ legislative work and we give citizens access to our institution through public events, bringing stakeholders and the public together with their MEPs, academics and think-tanks.

Our Press relations team organises press briefings and keeps the media informed of news stories in the European Parliament. Our colleagues dedicated to youth activities work closely with teachers, educationalists and bodies involved in active citizenship to produce and distribute free and neutral resources about the EP. Our public relations team develops links with trade bodies, professionals, companies, NGOs and anyone else who has an interest in European affairs and the role of the EP.




The Journal of European Public Policy (JEPP) was founded 25 years ago by Jeremy Richardson, and has become one of the most authoritative sources on scholarship on public policy, European politics and the European Union.

It consistently ranks among the top political science journals (9/165, Journal Citation Report 2016;
6th, Google Scholar 2016).

The journal is currently co-edited by Jeremy Richardson and Berthold Rittberger.
