About this title

Synopsis:

In an EU increasingly worried about the security of its citizens and its territory, how should the European Parliament make policy decisions in these areas? This study investigates how the empowerment of the European Parliament has led it to abandon its defence of civil liberties in order to become a full partner in inter-institutional negotiations

Review:

'Ripoll Servent has produced a groundbreaking analysis of the European Parliament as an emerging actor in the EU's Area of Freedom, Security and Justice. By linking a very significant new political actor with empirical investigations in three distinct case studies, the book makes a substantial contribution to our understanding of both the institutional framework and the legislative output of the EU. It is highly recommended for anyone interested in European security governance or European studies more generally'.

Christian Kaunert, Professor of International Politics, University of Dundee, Scotland

'Take a policy area of immense normative and empirical complexity AFSJ attempt to explain the dynamics of change and the institutional configurations affecting policy development in that area, and then refract that explanation through the analytical prisms of rational-choice and constructivist models of new institutionalism and the result is this book. Out of this mix, indeed, comes an ambitious book of immense clarity, intellectual curiosity and analytical sophistication with which to make sense of the European Parliament's contribution to developments and changes in the EU's internal security policies.'

David Judge, Emeritus Professor of Government, University of Strathclyde, Scotland

'Ariadna Ripoll Servent combines theoretical insight with empirical depth to excellent effect in this book as she critically analyses the European Parliament's response to the increase in its powers in the Area of Freedom Justice and Security. By combining her excellent understanding of the Parliament's behaviour with her in-depth policy knowledge she provides a book which is timely and relevant to scholars of both the European Parliament and EU security policies alike.'

This book addresses a very topical puzzle that cuts across both institutional issues and policy debates. The book is cohesive and reads well. Overall the book is a very valuable contribution both for academics and practitioners alike and substantially contributes to our understanding both of the role of the EP, of EU decision-making procedures and of the domain of AFSJ. (Christine Neuhold, Journal of Common Market Studies, Vol. 54 (3), 2016)
