    View Author February 2020

    On 29 January 2020, Ursula von der Leyen’s (VDL) Commission published its 2020 Work Programme, highlighting the European Commission’s (Commission) most important initiatives for the first year in office. As expected, the work plan bears no big surprises and is in line with VDL’s political guidelines, which were presented in July 2019. The 2020 Work Programme reiterates the goal of being a geopolitical Commission that strives for more, putting a strong focus on external action.
