Fusenet appears in The Parliament

An article on Fusenet has been published in The Parliament, an established magazine published by Dods Parliamentary Communications, that provides EU political news and information. The magazine can also be read on the similarly named Brussels-based website, theparliament.com. The Parliament is known for its analysis of key issues and debates within the EU institutions, and is therefore well read by European policy makers.

Fusenet appears on page 46 of issue 326 of the Parliament:
