A. IntroductionPurposeThis mapping provides the Open Society European Policy Institute and the Open Society networkintelligence on Members of the 8th European Parliament likely to support Open Society valuesduring the 2014–2019 legislature.It spans 11 committees and 26 delegations, as well as the European Parliament’s highest decisionmaking bodies: 226 MEPs who are proven or likely Open Society allies.The presence of an MEP in this mapping indicates that they are likely to support Open Society’swork. They should be approached with an open mind: although they will most likely want to work onareas they’re already interested in, they could also welcome hearing about new issues.Beyond discussing individual topics, Open Society should seek to build lasting and trustworthyrelationships with these European lawmakers.Using this documentSection B. European Parliament bodies lists the official bodies of the European Parliament, theirfields of competence, and the potential Open Society allies taking part in their work. They alsoinclude the names of political advisers* helping MEPs in committees, although these may changeduring the legislature, and they may not be Open Society allies themselves.Section C. Members lists 226 Members’ individual profiles. They provide information on Members’parliamentary affiliations (country, political group, nature of their mandate, and the committees anddelegations they belong to); their background (professional history, parliamentary interests, andother relevant intelligence); and their contact details.Finally, section D. Indexes provides three additional ways to find relevant Members: by issue ofinterest, by political group, and alphabetically.*Political advisers can be reached via the European Parliament’s standard e-mail addresses:

ProfilesIndividual profiles were compiled using both publicly available information and original research.Judgments made therein may be subjective, and should serve to give a sense of a Member’s politicsand priorities; it shouldn’t be seen as a definitive guide to an individual Member.Committees and delegations in bold (e.g. ‘AFET’, or ‘Ukraine’) indicate an MEP is a full member, andwill likely dedicate more time to these topics. Those indicated in a regular font (e.g. ‘AFET’, or‘Ukraine’) indicate an MEP is a substitute member.Note that profiles only list committees and delegations covered by this mapping, and will not featureothers. These can be discovered on MEPs’ online profiles (see below).By July 2019, some Members will leave the European Parliament for other mandates; others willreplace them; some will change committees or delegations; special committees may be set up; andimportantly, MEPs—particularly newcomers—may shift their priorities to other areas, or changetheir views.The information contained in these profiles is correct as of September 2014. Up-to-date andaccurate information, including assistants’ names, is available on MEPs’ online profiles: of abbreviationsiiECHRThe European Court of Human RightsISDSInvestor-state dispute settlement, a mechanism potentially included in TTIPOSCEOrganization for Security and Co-operation in EuropePACEParliamentary Assembly of the Council of EuropeTTIPTransatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership, likely to be intensely discussed duringthe 8th legislature

concept mapping has been developed to address these limitations of mind mapping. 3.2 Concept Mapping Concept mapping is often confused with mind mapping (Ahlberg, 1993, 2004; Slotte & Lonka, 1999). However, unlike mind mapping, concept mapping is more structured, and less pictorial in nature.
