The European Parliament and its International Relations (Routledge Advances in European Politics)
The European Parliament and its International Relations (Routledge Advances in European Politics)
Following the Lisbon Treaty, the powers of the European Parliament in external relations have gradually expanded and it is increasingly influencing the foreign policy of the European Union. This book analyses the role of the European Parliament as an international actor and presents a new debate about its role outside the EU territory. It explores different policy areas including human rights, international aid, trade, crisis management and the environment to provide a systematic analysis of the modern global role of the European Parliament. The book also considers the European Parliament’s regional interactions with Africa, Latin America, the United States, Asia and the Middle East. With a common analytical framework and research covering the lifespan of the European Parliament from its first direct elections in 1979 to the present day, this comprehensive volume presents an unparalleled analysis of one of the most important institutions in the European Union. This book will be of interest to students and scholars of European Union politics and institutions, European policy, government, international relations and European history.

How To Run The European Parliament
DESCRIPTION AND COMMENTS BY POLITICAL LEADERS: How do you gain influence and publicity in the European Parliament? How do you compete successfully with the Council and the Commission? How can you use reporters and lobbyists to advance your political career?

This brutally honest tutorial is a must-read for all MEPs, assistants, public servants, lobbyists, and journalists who want to understand how power politics is played. JACEK SARYUSZ-WOLSKI | Vice-President of the European People’s Party “Achieving success as an MEP, both nationally and within the EU, requires many skills - mastering the nuances of the legislative process, negotiating with impact, building networks, maximizing support and votes, organizing day-to-day functioning with optimal results, and many more. Marilyn Political's insightful tutorial captures these nuances in one book that every aspiring MEP and his collaborators should read.” ALEXANDER GRAF LAMBSDORFF | Vice-President of the European Parliament “Unique and impressive. An absolute must-read for all new Members of the European Parliament.” PETRI SARVAMAA | Vice-Chair of the European Parliament’s Committee on Budgets “Astonishing read! It's merciless, unforgiving, and so true. As an MEP I could not imagine a better guide into ways of influencing political decision-making in Brussels. I regularly go back to the advice of the book. And I make sure all my advisers and assistants know the text by heart.” MARKUS FERBER | Vice-Chair of the European Parliament’s Committee on Economic and Monetary Affairs “How to Run the European Parliament provides an informed insight on what happens behind the curtains. From negotiation strategies to shaping public perceptions - this book is the perfect read if you want to gain an in-depth understanding of how European policy making actually works.” LINNÉA ENGSTRÖM | Vice-Chair of the European Parliament’s Committee on Fisheries “This book will teach you the mind-set and psychology of the European Parliament. Being a European politician means: relying on good advisers and having the confidence and strength to be patient, generous, and trustworthy. The road to success lies in hard work - and making the right choices. This book will give you exactly the push you need, and the direction to set you on the right path.” ANDREY NOVAKOV | Member of the European Parliament “One of the most get-to-the-point, useful, and must-have political books I have in my library.” IVAN ŠTEFANEC | Member of the European Parliament “The book is a very useful and enjoyable reading, particularly for newcomers to the European Parliament. It is a good overview of parliamentarian activities. It reassured me about what I was doing right and where I should improve.” JONÁS FERNÁNDEZ | Member of the European Parliament “This book makes for fascinating - and funny - reading. More importantly, it is quite useful, particularly for newcomers. I highly recommend it to any new MEP as absolutely essential. It provides quite a number of practical suggestions, and not to be underestimated, a fair amount of laughing, something that should never be in short supply when working at the European Parliament.” SANDER LOONES | Vice-Chair of the European Parliament’s Committee on Economic and Monetary Affairs “The European House of Cards, but with a healthy portion of pragmatism.” LOOK INSIDE THE BOOK: www.marilynpolitical.com/publications

The European Parliament
The European Parliament
The 766-member European Parliament (EP) is a key institution of the European Union (EU), a unique political and economic partnership composed of 28 member states. The EP is the only EU institution that is directly elected. Although the EP does not formally initiate EU legislation, it plays a significant role in the EU’s legislative and budgeting processes, and works closely with the two other main EU bodies, the European Commission and the Council of the European Union (also known as the Council of Ministers).Members of the European Parliament (MEPs) serve five-year terms. The most recent EP elections were held in June 2009. The EP currently has seven political groups, which caucus according to political ideology rather than nationality, plus a number of “non-attached” or independent members. The EP has 20 standing committees that are key actors in the adoption of EU legislation and a total of 41 delegations that maintain international parliament-to-parliament relations. The EP is led by a President, who oversees its work and represents the EP externally.Once limited to being a consultative assembly, the EP has accumulated more power over time. Experts assert that the EU’s latest effort at institutional reform—the Lisbon Treaty, which entered into force on December 1, 2009—increases the relative power of the EP within the EU considerably. The EP now shares legislative power with the Council of Ministers in most policy areas, giving the EP the right to accept, amend, or reject the vast majority of EU laws (with some exceptions in areas such as tax matters or foreign policy). The Lisbon Treaty also gives the EP the power to decide on the allocation of the EU budget jointly with the Council, the right to approve or reject international agreements, and greater decision-making authority on trade-related issues. At the same time, some analysts contend that the EP still lacks the legitimacy of national parliaments. Those of this view note the perpetually low voter turnout for EP elections, and assert that many European citizens remain unaware of the EP’s role within the EU.The EP has not been shy about exerting its new powers under the Lisbon Treaty, and in some areas, with implications for U.S. interests. Long-standing EP concerns about U.S. data privacy safeguards contributed to the EP’s initial rejection in February 2010 of the U.S.-EU SWIFT agreement allowing U.S. authorities access to European financial data to help counter terrorism (a revised accord was eventually approved in July 2010). EP worries about whether the United States could guarantee a sufficient level of protection for European citizens’ personal data also necessitated a new round of U.S.-EU negotiations on another anti-terrorism measure that permits the sharing of airline Passenger Name Record (PNR) data. Following the recent revelations of U.S. National Security Agency surveillance programs and news reports alleging that U.S. intelligence agencies have monitored EU diplomatic offices, many analysts worry about whether future U.S.-EU information-sharing agreements will be able to secure the necessary EP approval. In addition, EP approval will ultimately be required to allow any eventual U.S.-EU agreement on a Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP) to enter into force.Ties between the EP and the U.S. Congress are long-standing, and institutional cooperation currently exists through the Transatlantic Legislators’ Dialogue (TLD). In light of the EP’s new powers following the entrance into force of the Lisbon Treaty, especially those that have increased the EP’s role as an actor in the conduct of U.S.-EU relations, the EP and its activities may be of increasing interest to the 113th Congress.

Members of the European Parliament on the Web: Transparency, Information and Representation on Personal Websites of Parliamentarians (Studien Zum Parlamentarismus)
Members of the European Parliament on the Web: Transparency, Information and Representation on Personal Websites of Parliamentarians (Studien Zum Parlamentarismus)
The Members of the European Parliament are often ignored by citizens and media. Their work is perceived as being far away from the citizens, as just another part of the opaque institutions of the European Union. Just as far away seems to be the national level, which the European parliamentarians have to keep in mind for their work as well as their further political career. Online communication on personal websites has the potential to address these problems since parliamentarians may present their work in depth. This study looks at the websites of Members of the European Parliament with a quantitative content analysis, with the themes of information, transparency and representation being in the focus. For this, a comparison with national parliamentarians is made. The results show that differences between political levels as well as national and ideological factors play a role when assessing how parliamentarians present themselves online.

In Pursuit of Democratic Legitimacy? Niklas Luhmann and the European Parliament Elections of 2014
In Pursuit of Democratic Legitimacy? Niklas Luhmann and the European Parliament Elections of 2014
Master's Thesis from the year 2015 in the subject Politics - International Politics - Topic: European Union, grade: 1,3, Queen's University Belfast (School of Politics, International Studies and Philosophy), language: English, comment: Die Note nach UK-Benotungsskala ist 73. Über 70 ist eine sehr gute Note (1,3), ab 80 entspricht dies einer 1,0. 21 Seiten Anhänge / 21 pages appendices, abstract: This thesis analyses the European Parliament elections of 2014 through the lens of Niklas Luhmann's theory of legitimacy. These elections differed from earlier ones due to the introduction of Spitzenkandidaten, lead candidates, for the position of Commission President by the majority of European party groups. In order to provide the historical context for the elections of 2014, this thesis presents the development of the European Parliament and argues that the search for political legitimacy at the European level was the driving force behind this development, including the recent introduction of Spitzenkandidaten. The thesis stipulates that Luhmann's work on legitimacy in particular has undeservedly been mostly overlooked in European studies. In order to test the applicability of his work in the context of European democracy, five themes are developed that collectively characterise Luhmann's legitimacy theory. These themes are used as the basis for a thematic analysis of documents of the Spitzenkandidaten idea's main proponents, these being the European Parliament and Commission and the Spitzenkandidaten of the three parties that are considered to be the most supportive of European integration - the European People's Party, EPP, the Party of European Socialists, PES, and the Alliance of Liberals and Democrats for Europe, ALDE. The document analysis confirms the hypothesis that Luhmann's work deserves far more attention from European integration studies than it has so far received.
