This concluding chapter outlines the key findings of the book and argues that EU’s input legitimacy cannot rest on NPs in a constitutionally significant way if their powers, which are tangibly affected by the crisis, do not acquire a more binding nature. Parliaments’ functions of identity building and contestation need to be made constitutionally relevant not only at the national level but also at the EU level, lest their resilience be overcome by integrative forces of European integration. These forces need to be politically challenged and appraised in a fundamental manner, which subsidiarity policing does not afford.
