Parliamentary Cooperation and Diplomacy in EU External Relations

An Essential Companion

Edited by Kolja Raube, Meltem Müftüler-Baç and Jan Wouters

In today’s increasingly complex and interdependent world, the role of parliaments in external affairs remains a relatively under explored topic of research. The multiple patterns of global governance are mostly dominated by the executive branches of government, with parliaments relegated to the sidelines. This insightful book aims to challenge this dominant perspective and demonstrate the increased networking of parliaments both within the EU and with external actors outside the EU. It not only sheds light on EU parliamentary cooperation and networking, but also reveals the growing scope and role of parliamentary scrutiny, control and conflict mediation.

Chapter 14: External Europeanization through parliamentary cooperation: the EU-Ukraine Parliamentary Association Committee and EU-Turkey Joint Parliamentary Committee in comparative perspective

Jakub Wódka and Agnieszka Cianciara


This chapter looks into two formats of the EU’s parliamentary cooperation with third countries – the EU–Ukraine Parliamentary Association Committee and the EU–Turkey Joint Parliamentary Committee. These two committees were originally intended to serve as forums of Europeanization of the political elite in EU’s two neighbouring countries The chapter’s main argument is that neither the EU–Ukraine Parliamentary Association Committee nor the EU–Turkey Joint Parliamentary Committee has fulfilled the role for which they had been established, i.e. they have not contributed to the socialization of political class in an associate country (Ukraine) and a candidate state (Turkey). Adopting a comparative approach, the study seeks to identify the factors that constrain the effectiveness of the EU’s parliamentary cooperation.
