Présider par plaisir : L’examen des affaires européennes à l’Assemblée nationale et à la Chambre des Communes depuis Maastricht

Abstract : Over time, the French and British parliaments have progressively obtained significant prerogatives in the control of European affairs. However, the European activities of their lower houses are under-developed and attract a limited number of MPs. This paradox results from a divergence of interest between governing-party leaders and backbenchers. In consequence, the European activities of both assemblies are handled not by experts on Community affairs, but by a variety of MPs, who play various roles according to their personal psychological expectations. Based on an analysis of what motivates those presiding over the National Assembly’s Delegation for the European Union and the House of Commons European Scrutiny Committee, we can distinguish four basic Europeanized roles, which we call the Chair, the Club Member, the Inquisitor and the One who rubs shoulders with the Great and Powerful.
