There is a debate across Europe as to what role national parliaments should play in policy making in the EU – would an increased role for national parliaments enhance or reduce the democratic legitimacy of the EU?
In this context this event will examine in practice how the House of Lords in the UK Parliament and the National Assembly for Wales relate to, and seek to influence, EU policy making. With speakers from the UK Parliament and the National Assembly for Wales – Speakers: Lord Boswell of Aynho (Chair, EU Select Committee, UK House of Lords), David Melding AM (Chair, Constitutional and Legislative Affairs Committee of the National Assembly for Wales) and Chair: Dr Jo Hunt, Cardiff Law School.
The event is aimed at the interested citizens, students and researchers. The talks and discussions will last approximately 75 minutes.
There will also be a free buffet after the discussion.
