Abstract

During the last years, interest in national parliaments and their participation in European matters has increased greatly. This paper looks at how such involvement has, and might be further, developed. Collective modes of co-operation by national parliaments, such as the Assizes, COSAC and the Conventions, will be investigated, as will national-level scrutiny of government activities at the European level, specifically those in Denmark, Italy and the UK.

Keywords: National Parliaments, Convention, Denmark, Italy, UK
