Building Europe's Parliament

Berthold Rittberger (Contributor Webpage)

Oxford University Press

Focuses on the third landmark decision in the history of the empowerment of the European Parliament, the decision by the member state governments to delegate legislative powers to the European Parliament that became effective with the adoption of the Single European Act (SEA). In this context, the chapters also sheds light on the question why the European Parliament had to wait until the mid-1980s to be bestowed with legislative decision-making power.
