The European Parliament's Quest for Representative Autonomy : An Internal Perspective Paperback
This publication describes the quest of the European Parliament to define itself whom it represents and in what manner.
It was prompted by the controversial judgment of the German Federal Constitutional Court (GFCC) regarding the Lisbon Treaty handed down on Tuesday, 30 June 2009 (the Lisbon Decision).
That judgment ignored crucial elements of the European Parliament's nature; important rules that determine how members of the European Parliament can carry out their representative mandate, and how they can present themselves to their electorate, were brushed aside.
