The monograph 'Parliamentary Oversight of the Executives. Tools and Procedures in Europe' (Oxford, Hart Publishing, 2020) by Elena Griglio will be presented on Tuesday 19 January 2021 from 11:00 to 12:30.  

Oversight of executives has always been a key function of parliaments and one that is central to developing the relationship between the executive and legislative branches of government. However, in reality governments are taking a more pronounced role in controlling legislation, diluting the influence of parliament. This book plots this trend in parliaments across Europe, to illustrate points of convergence and divergence. In so doing, it suggest tools and methods that parliaments can develop to bolster their crucial oversight role. 

Moderator: Carlos Closa, Professor, School of Transnational Governance, European University Institute

  • Wolfgang Wessels, Professor, School of Transnational Governance, European University Institute
  • Deirdre Curtin, Professor, Department of Law, European University Institute
