About the Group
Welcome to the website of the EA

Welcome to the website of the EUROPEAN ALLIANCE Group at the Committee of the Regions. The EA Group is one of the five political groupings in the Committee of the Regions drawing members from local and regional governments the length and breadth of the European Union. All of our members are senior local politicians in local and regional governments who have an electoral mandate. The EU deeply affects our local communities in many ways and so we work on a broad range of issues feeding into the decision making process and giving local communities a strong voice in Europe.

The Committee of the Regions is responsible for a wide range of different areas and this is reflected in the work that we undertake in the European Alliance Group. This ranges from our work on specific issues in the Commissions, Conferences and Plenary Sessions of the Committee of the Regions to making people more aware of the EU and how it affects our every day lives. It is our job to make sure that we give our communities a strong voice here in Europe. I hope that our website will be of some use to you. If you would like any further information or have any other questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.

Stanisław SZWABSKI,
President of the European Alliance Group
Councillor of the City Council of Gdynia
