European Union

The Good Information Podcast: The EU and You - how can Irish citizens steer Europe's course?

Where is the EU leading us on climate and common defence?

EVEN AFTER 50 years of European Union membership, polling data consistently suggests that Irish people overwhelmingly favour being a part of the EU.

For the final episode of The Good Information Podcast, we examined what it means to Irish people – members of the public, policy-makers and MEPs themselves – to be a citizen of Europe.

The Journal Reporter Lauren Boland joins host Susan Daly to discuss how our membership of the European Union shaping our climate policy, and what Russia’s invasion of Ukraine means for the union’s approach towards common defence.
