The evolving role of national parliaments in the European Union

Ireland as a case study

First Edition

Gavin Barrett

Published by Manchester University Press

  • Analyses the stop-start yet real process of Irish parliamentary adaptation to European integration. A topic of considerable comparative interest, given the similarities between Ireland>'s system of governance and that if the UK and parts of Europe
  • Uses extensive research into the work and functioning of the Oireachtas since Ireland's entry to the original Communities in 1973 right up to more recent events such as the entry into force of the Lisbon Treaty reforms, the financial crisis that engulfed Europe from 2008 on and the time of the 31st Dáil
  • A unique examination of a topic of considerable comparative interest, particularly given the many similarities between Ireland>'s system of parliamentary government and that of the United Kingdom and the common challenge (which will endure beyond Brexit) of coping with European integration and the interdependence of States.
  • Involves original research and written by one of Ireland's leading experts in European law and policy in a readable and accessible style.
