Plenary sessions

The Convention meets once or twice a month, at the premises of the European Parliament in Brussels.

Although dealing with a range of issues, each session focuses mainly on one or two subjects.

The agenda is set by the Praesidium. Before each session the members of the Convention receive documents to enable them to prepare their contributions.
