Parliamentary Control of Governmental Actions on the Interaction with European Organs in the Hellenic Parliament and the National Assembly of Serbia

The role of the national Parliaments in scrutinizing the governments’ actions has been in the academic agenda for a long time. The paper will examine the parliamentary response, in terms of parliamentary control, on the governmental negotiations for three Economic Adjustment Programmes for Greece in the time period between 2010 and 2015. In an additional case study, the parliamentary means in the National Assembly of Serbia will be examined in the light of the opening of the negotiation process with the EU. In both cases, an overview of the available means of  parliamentary  control will be presented, followed by  a  discussion of  their suitability to exercise control of governmental actions in the European organs. Specific cases of parliamentary control will also be presented, as well as relevant statistics.
