As the competences of the European Union have considerably grown with time, most of the legislative decisions that have an impact on crop biodiversity initiatives are discussed, negotiated, and taken in Brussels. The webinar aims to give a better understanding of the European Union decision-making process, by identifying the different institutions and discussing the separation of powers in the EU. Highlighting the different legislative procedures and the instruments that result from them, the webinar puts these principles and procedures in the context of crop biodiversity.
