A couple months ago, I was very fortunate to get to go on a college trip to visit the European Parliament in Strasbourg. The European Parliament in Strasbourg is the world’s largest transnational

The city of Strasbourg in France is the official seat of the European Parliament. The MEPs meet
in Strasbourg twelve times a year for a session, which usually takes around four days. The
