Parlamentarne komisje do spraw europejskich i ich rola w unijnej sferze aktywności organów państwa
Parliamentary Committees on European Affairs and their Role in the European Sphere of Activity of the State Bodies
Languages of publication
An important role in incorporating particular Member States in integration structures was played by matters relating to the apportionment of powers between the state authorities to decide on matters relating to membership in the EC/EU. The emergence and development of parliamentary committees for European affairs is connected with the desire to increase the impact of national legislative bodies on the European decision-making process and to provide the representative bodies with mechanisms ensuring real supervision over the actions of governments on the European scene. The committees for European affairs continue to have the nature of auxiliary bodies of parliament, however, due to the nature of problems undertaken by them, their high autonomy in relation to parliamentary chambers is evident. To some extent, even they replace parliamentary chambers in exercising their powers concerning the process of lawmaking in the EU. Recognizing this phenomenon, showing new trends in relations between parliament and its committee is therefore of great importance for the research in this fi eld.
