The Position of National Parliaments within the New EU Economic Governance
Languages of publication
Recent initiatives in the field of the economic governance and the Eco¬nomic and Monetary Union, similarly as to treaty revisions, influence the position of national Parliaments in the EU and create an impulse to rethink domestic arrange¬ments for handling EU affairs in individual Member States, as well as to redefine the system of inter-parliamentary co-operation. As a consequence, the discussion con¬cerning the democratic legitimacy of economic governance opens a new chapter in evolution of the role of European national legislatures in the EU. The aim of this arti¬cle is to present the legal and political aspects of the national Parliaments’ position within the new EU economic governance, and assess their ability to ensure demo¬cratic legitimacy in the context of their current legal position in the EU.
