Controversial issues surrounding the operation of these institutions are discussed, and solutions are offered that are based both on actual practice and a theoretical appreciation of the dynamics of the procedures involved. Particular emphasis is placed on the way in which these institutions interact during the legislative process.
The book also deals in detail with the consequences of the Treaty on European Union and the recent Edinburgh summit for the legislative process of the Community and its institutional framework. It analyses the new procedures that are introduced, in particular, the Co-decision Procedure and the principle of subsidiarity.
The effect of the Maastricht reforms on the position within the legislative process of the European Parliament and their contribution towards resolving the problem of the `democratic deficit' are also considered.
