The EU's influence on Swedish hunting issues

How has hunting been affected by the Swedish membership of the EU, and which EU-questions are the most important for Swedish hunters? What does the EU regulation mean for the protection of breeding birds and the Swedish predator policy? Is more or less EU regulation needed for governing the hunting of predators and birds?

The second of nine lunch debates organised by the European Parliament's Information Office in Sweden and the Swedish Riksdag. The debates come under the theme "EU 50 years of cooperation" and examine EU questions that have a direct impact on our everyday life.

The lunch debates are all taking place during the Democracy Workshop to be held at Västerlånggatan 1, Stockholm, from 11.30am to 1.00pm. Registration details can be found at Registration for the debate on Thursday 16 March must be completed at the latest on 15 March.
