EP as a driver on the parliamentarization of the EU

Brännpunkt Europa are proud to present Adrienne Héritier who is a professor emeritus at the European University Institute in Florence. She has a wide experience in governance, institutions, democracy, competition policy and market regulation and this time she will give us a lecture on the parliamentarization of the EU. 

The lecture focuses on the role of the European Parliament in bringing about institutional changes in the European policy and institutional changes which point in the direction of a parliamentary democracy. Héritier will describe how the EP acquired more power in legislation, comitology, and in the appointment of the European Commission and the budgetary process. Héritier will then analyse the role of the EP in economic governance.
