About this Event

Host Organization: Centre for European Studies Jean Monnet Chair in “Democracy in the EU“
More Information: Please click here for additional details.

This public lecture will discuss the recent developments, such as the Eurozone and refugee crises and “Brexit,” which demonstrate that the EU presents genuinely political choices to the citizens of the EU member states, often with far-reaching and divisive effects on their domestic politics. In this context, national parliaments have emerged as one of the few arenas of public debate and contestation about the decision-making of the EU, and hence an important source of its democratic legitimacy. Prof. Wendler will identify various functions of national parliaments that have only recently been fully recognized by research on European integration.
