Summer Program "Parliamentary Democracy in Europe", Rome 10-21 July: Applications Welcome

LUISS School of Government is pleased to annouce the Summer School "Parliamentary Democracy in Europe: Parliaments, democratic accountability and budgetary powers". 

The summer program on “Parliamentary democracy in Europe” and the Jean Monnet module associated to it intend to cope with one of the challenges Parliaments are currently facing: the increase in the number and scope of highly technical decisions normally taken outside parliaments or where parliaments certainly do not play the role of main decision-makers. The new EU intergovernmentalism and the powers conferred or exercised by independent and technical institutions, the unprecedented design of the budgetary procedures and of the budgets partly at European level and partly at national level leave Parliaments with a narrow margin of manoeuvre to control crucial decisions for their polities.

Applications deadline: 30 April 2017.
