Reconstituting Democracy in Europe (RECON)


How does democracy function under the conditions of the European multi-level system? This was the question that 21 research institutes from Europe and New Zealand addressed in the EU-financed project RECON (Reconstituting Democracy in Europe).

The role of parliaments in the EU’s foreign and security policy

PRIF's contribution to the project focused on the EU’s foreign and security policy, particularly the role of parliaments. PRIF researchers examined the scope of action available to national parliaments and the European Parliament along with inter-parliamentary cooperation in the area of EU security policies, both in general and with respect to individual military deployments. Moreover, they investigated the role of persuasion processes in the area of common foreign policy and analyzed public opinion in regards to EU foreign and security policies.
