For the past 40 years, Members of the European Parliament have been working at boosting Parliament's role in EU foreign policy. These efforts have continued to be stepped up since the launch of the common foreign and security policy (CFSP) in 1993. Over recent decades, the European Parliament has significantly raised its profile as a credible moral force with strong focus on strengthening human rights, supporting democracy and enhancing the rule of law worldwide. Perhaps less visible than the European ...

Les députés au Parlement européen peuvent former des groupes politiques, qui s’organisent non selon la nationalité, mais selon l’affiliation politique. Depuis les premières élections directes de 1979, le nombre de groupes politiques a oscillé entre sept et dix. À la suite des élections de 2019, le nombre, la taille et la composition des groupes politiques devraient continuer à varier en raison de la dissolution éventuelle de certains d’entre eux ou, à l’inverse, de la création de nouveaux groupes ...

Étant l’unique institution européenne directement élue, le Parlement européen est au cœur de la démocratie représentative, le fondement sur lequel repose l’Union européenne. Depuis la création du Parlement, ses pouvoirs ont considérablement évolué, faisant de lui un organe législatif à part entière ainsi qu’un espace de dialogue et d’engagement, dont l’influence se fait ressentir dans la quasi-totalité des domaines d’activité de l’Union. Le présent document offre un aperçu des principaux pouvoirs ...

Fondée sur un large éventail de sources d’archives accessibles depuis peu, cette étude examine les politiques du Parlement européen en matière de réforme institutionnelle des Communautés européennes entre 1979 et 1989. Elle présente la manière dont le Parlement a rempli des fonctions essentielles dans le processus de constitutionnalisation de l’Union européenne d’aujourd’hui. Il s’agissait notamment de définir un ensemble de critères pour une gouvernance efficace et démocratique, d’élaborer des concepts ...

This study charts the course and contours of academic interest in, and writing about, the European Parliament (EP) since its origins in the early 1950s. What began as a trickle of scholarly works on the EP turned into a flood in the early 1990s, after the EP acquired greater legislative power and became more like a ‘real’ (if not a ‘normal’) parliament. The study does not claim to mention every significant work on the EP, and may well mention some works that other scholars might not consider to be ...

The study examines the status quo of the European Parliament's powers of scrutiny of the European Commission. The cases examined pertain mainly to electoral and institutional issues, motions of censure, parliamentary questions, inquiry committees and special parliamentary ...
