This EU-funded Erasmus network brings together almost sixty partner institutions to discuss matters of parliamentary democracy in Europe. Drawing on the themes raised in the OPAL project, this network ensures ongoing opportunities for academics to publish work-in-progress in the Online Papers series. Academics and graduate students are also welcome to attend the various workshops organised by Pademia partners.
The European Centre is leading the Pademia workpage on ‘The Role of Parliamentary Actors in Europe’ and will hold a workshop on Political parties and the European crisis on 26/27 November 2015. Further details and a call for papers will appear shortly. A second workshop, provisionally called ‘Parliamentary Committees Post-Lisbon: Towards a redistribution of tasks? will be organised in Brussels by Professor Christine Neuhold of Maastricht University in Spring 2016; further details will be available in due course.
