 In the new convocation, the Committee began working on 7 November 2014 under an expanded title – the Citizenship, Migration and Social Cohesion Committee – thus assuming more responsibilities.

 The Committee conducts parliamentary scrutiny over the areas within its scope of responsibility.

However, regarding some legislative issues, it can be designated as a co-responsible committee and issue opinions for the use of legislative committees.
