Additional Information

National Parliaments and Europe
OPAL project final conference draft programme
 London, 31 March 2014
Europe House and Palace of Westminster

The National Parliaments and Europe conference is organised to mark the end of a three-year collaborative project on national parliaments in the EU after the Treaty of Lisbon. It will be an occasion for the consortium partners of the Observatory of Parliaments After Lisbon (OPAL) project from the Universities of Cambridge, Cologne, Maastricht and Sciences Po Paris to present the most significant findings of their research, to exchange ideas with practitioners and to acknowledge the support of the individuals and institutions that made this project possible.

The event will bring together academics, parliamentarians and parliamentary staff from several EU member states to discuss the main themes of the OPAL Project including national parliamentary scrutiny of EU legislative and non-legislative affairs, the role of national parliaments in the management of the Eurozone financial crisis, and the evolution of inter-parliamentary cooperation after the Lisbon Treaty.

The conference will take place in two venues highlighting the relevance of both the European and national dimensions to our research: Europe House, which houses the London Offices of the European Parliament and European Commission, and the House of Commons. 

To request a registration form, please email Ania Dzieszkowska at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it . Due to space constraints, the number of participants is limited and places will be allocated on a first-come, first-served basis.
