Rik de Ruiter
Het huidige onderzoek van Rik de Ruiter richt zich op politiek, bestuur en beleid van de Europese Unie, zowel op nationaal als supranationaal niveau. Hij is vooral geïnteresseerd in de betrokkenheid van national parlementen in het Europese integratie proces.
The first strand in Rik’s current research agenda focuses on recent developments in the EU legislative process and their effects on the EU and on domestic levels. Research themes within this strand include the informal negotiations between the EP and the Council, the scrutiny by national parliaments of and media reporting on EU-level decision making processes on directives, and the degree of overlap in scrutiny of EU legislative acts between Upper and Lower Houses. The second research strand focuses on the use by MPs of information from OMCs on the performance of national policies in parliamentary debates. A third strand in Rik’s research agenda focuses on the Open Method of Coordination (OMC), a non-binding benchmarking policy tool aimed at fostering exchanges of policy practices between EU member states with regard to education, internet, research and development, and social and employment policies.
