Abstract :
[en] Parliamentary Administrations in the European Union offers a comprehensive overview over the role of parliamentary administrations in the control of European Union policy-making. It questions whether the decision to give parliaments greater powers in the aftermath of the Lisbon Treaty had only the intended effect of political debate on European policies, or whether it has also resulted in the bureaucratisation of parliaments. In this pursuit, it argues that the challenges of information-management faced by parliaments lead them to delegate an extensive set of tasks to their administrations. The book offers a broad empirical picture: It analyses the challenges faced by national parliaments and the role and response of their administrations in the case of the European Parliament, national parliaments and regional parliaments. In addition, it studies the interaction between different administrations and their contribution to interparliamentary cooperation. In the process, it presents a new and different perspective on the challenges and dynamics of multi-level parliamentarism.
