In the European Parliament, ECR MEPs have ‘rolled up their sleeves‘ and immersed themselves in the detail of the work of the European Parliament. Our efforts have delivered results. Many of these results do not make good headlines in newspapers, but they improve people‘s lives nonetheless.
The ECR Group was formed in 2009 because we were not satisfied with the direction in which the EU was travelling.
We quickly became the only mainstream organisation in the European Parliament committed to making the EU focus solely on areas where the EU can add value, such as opening markets and supporting cross-border cooperation. And we are the only group that believes the EU should decentralise powers back to national capitals, town halls or to families and individuals.
