Kangaroo Group

The Kangaroo Group is an informal forum in which politicians, officials and the social partners can come together to exchange information and views regarding the issues of the day; and to devise further initiatives for the development of the European Union. Our activities are determined by the Board.


They include:

  • Lunch or dinner debates at which representatives of the Parliament, the Commission and the Council discuss current legislative proposals with the Group
  • Lunches in Strasbourg at which distinguished speakers address the Group
  • Working groups to discuss particular policy areas and to develop ideas for the Group to consider
  • Visits to the European Union Presidencies, European Union Agencies or other relevant places in charge of Single Market policy
  • A quarterly newsletter providing information and opinion on legal and political developments in the European Union
