Parlamentul European: relațiile cu parlamentele naționale

01-10-2017

Progresele realizate în ceea ce privește integrarea europeană au determinat modificarea rolului parlamentelor naționale. Au fost create diverse instrumente de cooperare între Parlamentul European și parlamentele naționale pentru a garanta un control democratic eficace al legislației europene la toate nivelurile. Această tendință a fost consolidată prin dispozițiile introduse de Tratatul de la Lisabona.

Stakeholder consultation in the EU: Commission Guidelines

16-12-2015

A common reproach that has long been levelled at the set-up of European governance has concerned its 'democratic deficit'. In particular, this has encompassed the idea that the European integration process has traditionally strengthened the executive power at the expense of national parliaments, and pointed to the relatively modest powers initially granted to the European Parliament. Strengthening the democratic quality of EU decision-making became a central concern in the 2001 White Paper on European ...

A common reproach that has long been levelled at the set-up of European governance has concerned its 'democratic deficit'. In particular, this has encompassed the idea that the European integration process has traditionally strengthened the executive power at the expense of national parliaments, and pointed to the relatively modest powers initially granted to the European Parliament. Strengthening the democratic quality of EU decision-making became a central concern in the 2001 White Paper on European Governance which identified openness, participation and accountability among the principles of good governance. Against this background, the Commission has gradually developed and formalised numerous mechanisms aimed at broadening participation in order to increase legitimacy, transparency and effectiveness of its policies. While the Commission's consultation framework does not remain without its critics, it has undergone significant improvements. The current Article 11 TEU, introduced by the Lisbon Treaty, aims to give a new boost to 'participatory democracy' in the EU, alongside 'representative democracy', and mandates the Commission to carry out broad consultations with parties concerned. The Commission’s Better Regulation Package, adopted in May 2015, incorporates new consultation guidelines which, inter alia, expand the scope of stakeholder input throughout the policy cycle, further open up the impact assessment process to stakeholders' comments and signal renewed commitment to providing adequate feedback to stakeholders. It should also be mentioned that EU institutions, including the Commission, have developed a variety of mechanisms aimed at improving dialogue with wider society, formal stakeholder consultation being one of them. The following pages do not aim at providing a taxonomy of all of these mechanisms, but give a brief overview of the Commission Consultation Guidelines, which are yet to be implemented in practice.

European economic governance: State of play and reform proposals

09-11-2015

European Economic Governance, the system of multilateral coordination of national policies of European (and euro area) Member States, is a complex framework that has been reformed numerous times. The current system, adopted during the European debt crisis, is criticised on the grounds that it is too complex, opaque and lacks legitimacy. Although the various stakeholders have different views on the content of the reforms, the priorities that need to be given and the timeline of the implementation, ...

European Economic Governance, the system of multilateral coordination of national policies of European (and euro area) Member States, is a complex framework that has been reformed numerous times. The current system, adopted during the European debt crisis, is criticised on the grounds that it is too complex, opaque and lacks legitimacy. Although the various stakeholders have different views on the content of the reforms, the priorities that need to be given and the timeline of the implementation, most of them agree on the fact that the current system is imperfect and changes are needed to make EMU work better and avoid future crises.

Looking Ahead: Pathways of Future Constitutional Evolution of the EU

15-01-2015

The effects of the economic and fiscal crisis and the institutional instruments created to deal with it have led several actors (from governments and EU bodies to scholars) to propose different EU reforms. Several options exist to accommodate future constitutional development which, in some cases, may require Treaty revision. In this case, future constitutional evolution faces the challenge that the very stringent EU revision requirement (i.e. unanimity) poses. Other available options do not seem ...

Enhancing the Legitimacy of EMU Governance

15-12-2014

This study investigates ways to enhance the legitimacy of economic governance in the Economic and Monetary Union (EMU) without introducing Treaty changes. It suggests changes in the governance framework at both the institutional and economic level. Input-oriented legitimacy can be improved by increasing parliamentary oversight on decisions related to EMU and increasing the accountability of the Eurogroup. Output-oriented legitimacy can be improved by strengthening the ability of EMU to reduce the ...

This study investigates ways to enhance the legitimacy of economic governance in the Economic and Monetary Union (EMU) without introducing Treaty changes. It suggests changes in the governance framework at both the institutional and economic level. Input-oriented legitimacy can be improved by increasing parliamentary oversight on decisions related to EMU and increasing the accountability of the Eurogroup. Output-oriented legitimacy can be improved by strengthening the ability of EMU to reduce the emergence of negative externalities and to mitigate their impact, through market and fiscal risk-sharing mechanisms. This study was requested by the EP's Committee on Economic and Monetary Affairs (ECON).

The Open Method of Coordination

19-10-2014

The EU response to the 2008 economic crisis, which has exposed the weaknesses of the EU economic governance of the time, has resulted in a debate on how to find a balance between intergovernmentalism and supranational actions within the EU framework, bringing into question further use of soft intergovernmental methods, such as the Open Method of Coordination (OMC). In addition to that, with social and education issues increasingly gaining attention in the EU, OMC, one of the governance instruments ...

Parliament's role in anti-crisis decision-making

17-12-2012

The EU's response to the financial and economic crisis has been characterised by the prominent role of the European Council. Moreover, a number of anti-crisis instruments have been adopted outside the EU framework in order to overcome political and legal hurdles and to speed up negotiations. The EP has played a very limited role in the development of agreements adopted outside the EU framework, but it does have some involvement in the implementation of these instruments, although usually merely through ...
