One year ago the Barroso II Commission took office. To mark the Commission’s 1st Birthday, we asked actors from across the world of EU policy-making to tell us how you thought they did.
More than 320 respondents from all corners of the EU policy making world took part in our online survey, which asked questions about achievements of the European Commission as a body, as well as for each of the 27 individual Commissioners.
The results were presented on 9 February in Brussels by a panel composed of John Wyles (Senior Advisor, EPC), Jim Currie (Chairman, Burson-Marsteller Brussels), David Earnshaw (CEO, Burson-Marsteller), Tim King (Editor, European Voice) and moderated by Karen Massin (COO, Burson-Marsteller Brussels).
