Parliamentary Control of the Pillars

(p.323) 10 Parliamentary Control of the Pillars
The Intergovernmental Pillars of the European Union

Eileen Denza

Oxford University Press

This chapter examines the nature of parliamentary scrutiny of the intergovernmental pillars of the European Union. It aims to determine whether the decisions taken and the instruments adopted under the Second and Third Pillars are subject to adequate democratic control. It suggests that parliaments are generally limited in their scrutiny of foreign and security policy by the speed with which the most important events unfold and the frequent need for secrecy.

Keywords:   intergovernmental pillars, European Union, parliamentary scrutiny, Second Pillar, Third Pillar, democratic control, foreign policy, security policy, secrecy
