Professor of political science at the University of Bucharest and dean of his faculty, Cristian Preda was elected to the European Parliament between 2009 and 2019.

In a dialogue with Professor Jean-Michel de Waele, he will discuss the role of the EP’s political groups in managing some crises – such as the single currency crisis, the migrant crisis, or Brexit – but also the way the Parliament has dealt with policies such as enlargement and neighborhood or with the electoral observation missions, seen as a tool for democratization. Does political science serve a purpose when one is an MEP? Does it gain something from the action of the Strasbourg Parliament?
