Students are able to reconstruct the embedding of EU bodies, member states, and nongovernmental

organizations in the multilevel system of the EU. They can describe and explain

the complex interactions, interdependencies and cooperative efforts of institutions and

processes. Students are able to analyze issues concerning the democratic legitimacy of European

government.

Multi-Level Governance and European Democratic Society

The Lecture introduces concepts, hypotheses and applications of multi-level system analysis with regard to the EU's system. It concentrates on the systematic analysis of functions and profiles of both the European Parliament and national (sub-national) parliaments with regard to policy-making (legislative and budgetary functions), control and accountability, (s)election and creation functions, communication, representation and interactions functions and system-development functions. We will analyse institutioal and functional change in institutional, procedural and functional scope dimensions. In how far, under which circumstances and depending on which (set of) intervening variables do parliaments develop their concepts and strategies for parliamentarisation, democratisation and legitimisation of the EU? And how do these concepts and strategies impact on interparliamentary processes and institutions?
