Le contrôle parlementaire des affaires européennes : quelle influence sur les attitudes ?
Antoine Mounier is a master’s student in political science at Université de Montréal. His work focuses on the place of national parliaments in the decision-making system of the European Union and their potential role in resolving the democratic deficit.
Here, Antoine studies the control of national parliaments over European affairs and their impact on attitudes towards the EU. Using regression models, he quantifies citizens’ trust and its evolution in tandem with the control exercised by their respective governments. Through his research, Antoine detects the place the EU occupies in public opinion as it becomes more politicized and as issues of democratic legitimacy develop regarding it.
