Brussels Diary - 29th September 2017

It's weekly roundup time! 

Lots of committee work going on, and this is what else I've done:
 Attended an event on female genital mutilation (FGM) and how we can end this practice by engaging with people at grassroots level. 
 Met with representatives from the European Network for Independent Living (ENIL) to talk about the Commission's disability strategy and what we can do to better empower disable people. 
 Discussed human rights and regional security with a delegation from the UAE. 
 Spoke at an event with the Governor of Balochistan. 
 Met with Paul from the British Medical Association to hear about how Brexit will affect the medical profession.

In Strasbourg next week - look out for my Brexit update. 

Until then, all the best - WK.
