Brussels, 3-4 April 2014 – Upgrading Inter-parliamentary Cooperation in the EU
Valentin Kreilinger, Research Fellow at Notre Europe – Jacques Delors Institute participates in the CEPS Ideas Lab and does a presentation on “Upgrading Inter-parliamentary Cooperation in the EU” during the R&R sessions of the conference:
The new Inter-parliamentary Conference on Economic and Financial Governance has met twice, in October 2013 and January 2014. Although the need for more and better cooperation between the European Parliament and national parliaments has been recognised, the European Parliament sees this conference with reluctance and there is a lack of unity among national parliaments. This report refutes the main arguments advanced against inter-parliamentary cooperation and analyses possibilities to upgrade inter-parliamentary cooperation.
