Access to EU information can be a difficult task, especially if you do not know where to begin. Therefore, the Folketing has set up the EU Information Centre.
The objective of the Centre is to answer questions from citizens concerning the European Union (with emphasis on Denmark's participation in the EU decision making process), and to disseminate information and documentation concerning the EU to all interested parties.
The EU Information Centre is a politically neutral information service providing factual answers to questions about the EU. Fast, impartial, factual and free of charge.
