Chapter 30: Inter-parliamentary cooperation and parliamentary diplomatic activities in an unorderly world: concluding remarks
While parliamentary cooperation and diplomacy are topics that have not traditionally garnered significant research attention, the rising influence of parliaments in external relations and the increasing importance of inter-parliamentary cooperation has resulted in a greater focus on this subject in recent years. In the European Union in particular, the European Parliament has had a greater effect on EU foreign relations since the Treaty of Lisbon, which has spurred a new body of research in this area. Within this new research environment, two primary dimensions have emerged: the cooperation of national and supranational parliaments in international and supranational organizations; and the role of parliaments in foreign policy and external relations towards third countries. Both of these dimensions are discussed in depth in this edited volume. This chapter provides concluding remarks on the findings of the volume’s contributors.
