      [From the Introduction]. This paper tackles the puzzle of parliamentarisation by analysing the role of Interinstitutional Agreements (IIAs). The number of IIAs concluded between the EP, the Commission and the Council has sharply risen since the Maastricht Treaty. IIAs are designed to facilitate interinstitutional co-operation and prevent conflicts between the institutions. However, IIAs are more than just pragmatic answers to interinstitutional co-operation problems since they tend to strengthen the EP’s position in the EU’s constitutional set-up by expanding the EP’s control, information and legislative competencies, and placing it on an equal footing with the Council.
