Legal Implications of Economic Governance for National Parliaments
journal contributionposted on 2017-05-12, 11:11 authored by Adam Cygan
This paper explores how the post crisis EU economic and fiscal governance framework has marginalised national parliaments and compromised legislative autonomy, especially in the delivery of social welfare policy. This article argues that one potential consequence of this new regulatory and political landscape is that it creates scope for new form of democratic deficit to arise from the absence of effective accountability of EU economic and fiscal governance as well as undermining the Treaty principle of solidarity between Member States.
