Multilayered Representation in the EU

Christoher Lord has edited the volume 'Multilayered Representation in the European Union. Parliaments, Courts and the Public Sphere' with Tajtana Evas and Ulrike Liebert including several contributions from ARENA researchers.

Presentation of the book

The evolving European Union brings up vital questions about where democracy is heading.

The book contributes to this discussion by offering critical appraisals and constructive propositions by eminent experts engaging with the novel configuration of 'multilayered representation'.

Key issues are the 'European Multilevel Parliamentary Field', the role of European Jurisprudence for representation, and the emerging European public sphere.
