Miriam is a substitute member in the Committee on Petitions (PETI). Petitions can be brought forward by any EU citizen on a matter within the EU’s sphere of activities. The Committee hears cases, some 1500 each year, sometimes presented in Parliament by the citizen themselves.
Situation of fundamental rights in the EU
As part of my work in the PETI committee I am also responsible for a report on the situation of fundamental rights in the European Union.
