About the books

National Parliaments after the Lisbon Treaty and the Euro Crisis: Resilience or Resignation?(OUP 2017) is a critical assessment of two key factors which have deeply affected the position of national parliaments in European integration: the entry into force of the Lisbon Treaty and the sovereign debt crisis in the Eurozone. The book examines whether national parliaments exhibit resilience evaluates the evolving relationships between national parliaments and national governments, national courts, and EU institutions, in addition to surveying the emerging patterns of interparliamentary cooperation. This interdisciplinary collection yields novel insights into the deepening of the Economic and Monetary Union and into the new parliamentary initiatives shape EU democratic legitimacy.

Parliamentary Diplomacy in European and Global Governance is a pioneering study of the nature and functions of the fast-expanding phenomenon of parliamentary diplomacy in contemporary global politics.Through a wealth of empirical case studies, the book demonstrates that parliamentarians and parliamentary assemblies have an increasingly important international role. The volume begins with an analysis of the diplomatic capacity of the European Parliament as one of the strongest non-state actors in world politics. The study then examines parliamentary diplomacy in relations between Europe and third countries or regions (Mexico, Turkey, Russia, the Mediterranean), before turning attention to the rest of the world: North and South America, Asia, Africa and Australia.
