About this book

The end of the Cold War has seen an international proliferation of parliamentary bodies of all types and at all levels. How can this process of parliamentarization be assessed and under what conditions do these institutions operate? This book explores how regional integration and globalization are developing from a parliamentary perspective.

Reviews

'Transforming disorderly globalisation in democratic global governance is a key challenge for the future of mankind. This timely research volume is a helpful tool because it does not only talk of dreams but rather accurately analyses the necessary parliamentary dimension of democratic processes at regional and global level'

- Enrique Barón Crespo, Former President of the European Parliament

'Parliamentarism - the essence of democracy - faces a number of challenges in the globalizing world. Models of inter-parliamentary cooperation vary from continent to continent. A stronger post-Lisbon European Parliament - comprehensively analyzed in the first part of the volume - is one of the unique examples of efficient democratic governance. This book represents a valuable contribution to the scientific debate providing an interesting overview on different integration models across the world.'

-Jerzy Buzek, Member of the European Parliament, Former President of the European Parliament, 2009-2012 and Former Prime Minister of Poland, 1997-2001

'I am frequently asked what the purpose of regional parliaments actually is. Parliamentary Dimensions of Regionalization and Globalization provides an answer to this question by highlighting the many advantages of regional parliaments as well as exploring the political challenges they face in order to be useful institutions in society'

Dr. Rosinha, Former President of the Mercosur Parliament
