National and Regional Parliaments in the EU-Legislative Procedure Post-Lisbon

The Impact of the Early Warning Mechanism

Edited by: Anna Jonsson Cornell, Marco Goldoni

Much changed in European constitutional law after the Lisbon Treaty, not least the efforts to increase democratic legitimacy by engaging national legislatures and introducing a stricter subsidiary review process (namely the Early Warning Mechanism (EWM)). This collection looks at how national parliaments have adapted to their new roles and how the new system has impacted relations between the EU legislative bodies and these national parliaments. A team of experts from across Europe explore the effect of the EWM on the national constitutional orders, analyze the regional impact of EWM, and evaluate the new system of scrutiny.
