2015"This chapter summarizes the normative debate about the merits and shortcomings of having national parliaments in European foreign policy (section one) before reviewing the empirical research on national parliaments (section two). Corresponding to the skewed scholarly attention, the bulk of the second section is dedicated to national parliaments' involvement in military missions, rather than in European diplomacy. The development of transnational parliamentary cooperation and its rationale is addressed in the third section. The article concludes with suggestions for further research (fourth section)."
