Scrutiny in Challenging Times - National Parliaments in the Eurozone Crisis (2014:1epa)

National parliaments are often thought of as having lost substantial powers due to European integration. In what way has the rapid decision-making of the EU during the Eurozone crisis affected national parliaments within the Union?

In this publication, political scientists Katrin Auel and Oliver Höing present their analysis of activity within the national parliaments of the EU during the Eurozone crisis. Among other things, their survey shows how the varying degrees of parliamentary activity have become even more pronounced during the last years.

The publication is part of SIEPS´ research project The constitutional development of the EU.

Katrin Auel is Assistant Professor at the Department of Political Science, Institute for Advanced Studies,Vienna. Oliver Höing is a Phd candidate at the University of Cologne.
