Anna Herranz-Surrallés receives one of the three EUIA18 Best Paper Awards
The ‘European Union in International Affairs’ (EUIA18) is a biennial conference organised by several Brussels-based institutions.
The 6th edition took place between 16 and 18 May, gathering around 350 participants. Anna Herranz-Surrallés received one of the three Best Paper awards for her paper “Paradoxes of parliamentarization in European security and defence: When politicization and integration undercut parliamentary capital”.
The paper discusses the relation between integration, politicization and parliamentarization in the EU, using the case of the Common Security and Defence Policy. Contrary to the expectations, it concludes that the recent boost in integration and greater politicization of this domain have not translated into further parliamentarization, but rather, into a decrease of what the paper defines as the “parliamentary capital” of the European Parliament. The three awarded papers will be published in a themed section of the Journal of European Integration (JEI).
