The European Parliament, National Parliaments, and European Integration

Oxford University Press

The long‐term policy priorities of European representatives is analysed. Not only is this an important dimension of politics in itself, reflected in the continuous struggle over the agenda‐building process but also—following in the footsteps of Cultural Theory—probing individuals about their perceptions about future risks is an efficient way to understand their portrayal of the current situation. The integrated elite model and the agents of national interests model are evaluated against the data. This paints a complex, but structured picture of the European Parliament, which helps evaluate the seemingly contradictory findings about the nature of the institution in previous studies.

Keywords:   agenda building, Cultural Theory, integrated elite
