Abstract

The Lisbon Treaty granted national parliaments competences in EU affairs as one of the remedies to the alleged “democratic deficit”. The new powers not only redefined domestic parliamentary procedures but also affected the relationship between MPs, parliamentary staff and committees dealing with EU affairs. However in practice, argues Alexander Strelkov in a recent article, the effect has been limited. Most worrying is that MPs in very different parliaments disregard the content of EU proposal, denying themselves the chance to shape crucial national policies according to the preferences of their voters.
