Myths and milestones: the Europeanization of the legislative agenda in the Netherlands

G.E. Breeman, A. Timmermans

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

In July 2010, the Chamber of Representatives in the Netherlands, the Tweede Kamer, used a new parliamentary tool to constrain the government’s mandate on European policy proposals. This tool enables the Chamber to list issues for discussion with ministers in the national parliament before they represent the country in European policy-making. This first case of early parliamentary detection and involvement in EU policy-making followed after several years of stalemate and silence over European issues on the national political agenda.
