Summary "Promoting Unity, Preserving Diversity? examines the ways in which six of the member-state parliaments are connected to the EU legislative process via particular legislative bodies called European Affairs Committees (EACs). The EACs vary greatly from one member state to another with regard to the level of input legislators have in setting national positions on proposed EU legislation. Andrea M. Gates suggests that variations in EAC competencies are significant, not only because EACs demonstrate the intractability of each member state's particular attributes, but also because they present the little-explored facets of the EU's democratic failings."--BOOK JACKET.
