Uniting the Council of the European Union with Slovenian Presidency

The National Assembly is the supreme representative and legislative institution in Slovenia, performing the legislative, electoral, and supervisory functions. The principal role of the National Assembly is to adopt legislation and participate in EU decision-making. 

Between July and December 2021, the National Assembly gained the status of Slovenian Presidency of the Council of the European Union. Responsible for the functioning of the Council of the EU, the Slovenian Presidency hosted multilingual meetings for all the delegations of the Member States and led the democratic conversation, all – in the online format.

Heading

“Interactio platform helped us to preside the Council in an excellent way. A tool redefined multilingual communication for us, helping us to be multilateral in every meeting.”

Bojan Verbič, Head of ICT at the National Assembly of the Republic of Slovenia

About the event

The Presidency of the Council of the European Union rotates every six months between all Member States. It was the second time since Slovenia joined the European Union to get the privilege to be the host, so the stakes were high. The Slovenian Presidency hosted Council meetings for the delegations in English, French, or their native language, providing interpretation in English, French, Slovene, and their native language.

The Slovenian Presidency had to choose a virtual space that allows efficient communication, remote and on-site participation, and interpretation in several EU languages. They faced a decision: whether to continue using their platform of choice or adopt a previously successful Interactio RSI tool from their predecessors.
