    The parliamentary dimension in EU governance still needs attention, and is sure to be addressed in the Conference on the Future of Europe. The European Parliament (EP) has seen a constant growth in its legislative powers, but does not play an equivalent role in other spheres, such as economic governance. Often seen as ‘losers’ in European integration, national Parliaments have shifted towards more positive forms of engagement with EU law-making, while a variety of bodies for Interparliamentary Cooperation (IPC) have emerged in response to new forms of joint action by EU actors and national authorities. The Parliamentary Dimension of the Council Presidency deserves attention as a manifestation of this trend. It refers to the activities that are chaired, or co-chaired, by the Parliament of the country holding the rotating Presidency of the Council during its six months in office. This Briefing looks at the Parliamentary Dimension in the context of IPC, and suggests how it may help deal with governance challenges posed by trends in EU policies that take us beyond traditional approaches to subsidiarity.
