The summer break is over and MEPs are back at work. As the group leaders and European Parliament President Martin Schulz remind us throughout this issue, Greece and the refugee crisis will remain the focus of the next few months.

Schulz underlines that these times are "perhaps some of the most difficult for a century".

Senior deputies tell us what they will be working on throughout the upcoming parliamentary year and how they think team Juncker has performed in the first year of its mandate. They also share their views on the upcoming 'Brexit' referendum.

We also hear from European education, culture, youth and sport Commissioner Tibor Navracsics on the European Week of Sport, while members of Parliament's fisheries committee tell us about the latest reforms of the common fisheries policy.
