On the Emergence of Parliamentary Representations in Multilateral Conferences

  • Michal Onderco (Erasmus University Rotterdam)
Wednesday 8 March 2017
Wijnhaven - room 348

About the lecture

While the scholarship on the parliamentary control over the foreign and security policy is firmly established, we know very little about parliamentary participation in diplomatic activities. Yet, parliamentarians are increasingly taking part in the diplomatic conferences as parts of their delegations. This paper looks at the origins of the practice and attempts to explain the patterns.
