POLICY PAPER: The Legal Status of Accredited Parliamentary Assistants

In her policy paper, Nicole Grmelová concerns with accredited assistants to the European Parliament, commonly referred to as APAs. She examines their legal status and evaluates its efficiency, strengths and weaknesses, and also compares its written wording with the actual implementation after 10 years of existence of the legal status of assistants.

The aim of this policy paper is to outline the basic characteristics of the contract between the European Parliament and the APAs, in theory and in practice, and to make recommendations for both the European Parliament administration to avoid fraud that can be caused to the EU budget byAPAs, and for the Czech public administration to make use of the potential of experienced APAs.
