Origen y evolución de los parlamentos en los procesos de integración regional. Los casos del Parlamento Europeo y el Parlamento del Mercosur
María Victoria álvarez Macías
Colombia Internacional , 2011,
Abstract: Some processes of integration include a parliamentary body in their institutional structures. This paper combines basic premises of neofunctionalism and intergovernmentalism to address the origin and further evolution of regional parliaments, including the necessary precautions when applying European approaches of integration to other regions. With these postulates in mind, we outline an explanation of the way in which two regional parliaments, the European Parliament and the Mercosur Parliament, emerged and developed. The combination of approaches allows us to affirm that States are important and powerful actors, but the role of regional institutions and transnational actors cannot be ignored. However, comparative analysis shows that while in Europe the dynamics of the process of integration has feedback mechanisms beyond the control of States, in the Mercosur the influence of national Governments is overwhelming and prevents any "self-reinforcing" dynamics.

Abstract: Whatever the definition for democracy and democratic deficit is, the European Union is expected to develop some of the democratic features that member states present in order to compensate for the loss of legitimacy at the national level. The European Parliament, as the single elected institution of the European Union, is not only expected to comply with the basic requirements of democracy, but also to be a tool for enhancing democracy in the whole European political system. Starting the discussion by presenting the most important views expressed in the literature regarding the European Union’s democratic deficit, the paper aims to present the main strengths and weaknesses of the European Parliament in correcting the democratic deficit. It will be demonstrated that although the EP can correct the democratic deficit at the European level through its elections, the functions it performs and through its party system, it also has many limits in fulfilling this task. It can be stated that the same mechanisms which allow the EP to be a promoter of democracy inside the EU, also limit its capacity in this area and make the EP seem rather as part of the problem than a solution to it.

Avrupa Birli i sürecinde Avrupa Siyasi Partileri (European Political Parties in the Process of European Union)
Hüseyin GüL
Dokuz Eylül üniversitesi Sosyal Bilimler Enstitüsü Dergisi , 2009,
Abstract: Political parties at the European level are important as a factor of integration within the Union. They contribute to forming a European awareness and to expressing the political will of the citizens (Treaty on European Union, Article 138a). It is also problematic, as these parties do not constitute a European party system above the article. The article traces the development of transnational cooperation link among the parties of the European Parliament from 1952 to days, illustrates that, from the earliest stages of European integration, organizational structure and norms that were transnational and supranational in style and representation.
La asistencia europea a colombia: una contribución virtual a un plan virtual de paz?.
Joaquín Roy.
Colombia Internacional , 2001,
Abstract: This article presents a detailed analysis of current European assistance to Colombia, indicating the differences between European and American perceptions of the causes of the problems that plague the country as reflected in their respective views of Plan Colombia. The European perspective s illustrated by presenting the critical positions taken by various entities regarding Plan Colombia's excessive military focus, including the European Commission, the European Parliament, Spain and other European states. The author examines the contrasting view that stresses a broader range of needs and problems in Colombia to which the European Union's aid should respond, the difficulties met in this approach, and the philosophic basis of the European contribution to Colombia.
Division of seats in the European Parliament
Katarzyna Cegie ka, Piotr Dniestrzański, Janusz yko , Andrzej Misztal
Journal for Perspectives of Economic Political and Social Integration , 2010, DOI: 10.2478/v10241-012-0002-x
Abstract: The European Parliament is one of the most important institutions of the European Union. One of its main tasks is to represent the citizens of the European Union. The representation power of a state depends on its population. Unfortunately the number of inhabitants of states is distinguished by wide dispersion and the most popular methods based on the simple proportionality cannot be used in the European Parliament seats allotment. Therefore, different from proportional method is used - "the degressive proportionality method".
The European Parliament and the conflict in Libya (2011): an efficient moral platform?
Stelios Stavridis,Irene Fernández Molina
Revista CIDOB d'Afers Internacionals , 2013,
Abstract: The actions of the European Parliament with respect to the internal crisis in Libya and the international interventions carried out in the country in 2011 contradict the widely-held perception of the European Union’s passivity concerning the events of the Arab Spring. Previously, the Parliament had been the Brussels institution that had been relatively the most critical of Muamar el Gadafi’s regime. In the context of the violent repression of the protests in that year, the EU took on a role as an effective moral platform and showed great consensus in calling for international intervention based on the doctrine of the responsibility to protect . This confirms the hypothesis that the parlamentarisation of international relations encourages the introduction of regulatory elements far from the traditional premises and prescriptions of realism.
The Integration of MEPs from Central and Eastern Europe into the European Parliament
Radko Hokovsky
St?edoevropské Politické Studie , 2012,
Abstract: This article evaluates the level of integration of Members of the European Parliament from Central and Eastern Europe in the European Parliament after the EU enlargements of 2004 and 2007. The main objective is to address the puzzle of how the European Parliament’s political groups could maintain or even increase their voting cohesion after the influx of a significantly large number of new MEPs coming from countries with different historical experience, socio-economic characteristics, and political and party systems. Three indicators of MEP integration are defined: integration into parliamentary leadership, integration into parliamentary work, and integration into voting patterns. The article uses data from the VoteWatch.eu website on MEPs’ activities and voting between the years 2004-2011, as well as data from official documents of the European Parliament and its political groups. Analysis of the data reveals that the new member states’ MEPs were significantly under-represented in parliamentary leadership and key legislative activities, despite the fact that their voting loyalty to their political groups was greater than that of their colleagues from older member states.

Abstract: Many people have been preoccupied with Europe ever since the beginnings of time. Their ideas can be traced back as far as ancient mythology, as attempts to explain the world. But as of the 18th century, they looked at it differently, as an organized, unified, political institution. Numerous essays have influenced the history of the European idea, among them the work of Saint-Simon who, in 1814, thought of a European Parliament governing the national parliaments. In his essay on reorganizing the European society he brought forth ideas such as Europe rebuilt as a confederation, the establishment of a general parliament responsible for making decisions concerning the common interests of the whole European society. He strongly believed that putting the great political issues to the test is the aim of all contemporary efforts. If the previous century's philosophy was revolutionary, the 19ths centurys philosophy had to be organizing.
Alain Lamassoure
Romanian Journal of European Affairs (RJEA) , 2010,
Abstract: The crisis is not the root cause of the collapse of the European Union's economy; it is its revealing sign. The protectionism temptation has not been overcome at the European level, and yet Europe is the right path towards overcoming the crisis. We must double the growth potential of the Union. To solve the European budget problem, we have to choose new own resources. Beyond the Community budget, the financing of European policies and of the common targets clearly encompasses national budgets. The economic policies coordination has to involve National Parliaments. An annual debate among national parliaments, with the European Parliament, on budgetary orientations of each Member State would have a great pedagogical value. The time has come to give Europe the financial component which lacks to its institutions. It will be a complex, protracted and very difficult negotiation. The Belgian presidency could gather a European financial conference which mandate would be to put together in a financial Charter the principles that the Union needs to finance its policies.
