    Abstract

    [From the Introduction]. Starting with a brief overview on recent developments and missions in ESDP this paper first raises the question of public support in this policy field focussing on the discussion about legitimacy. Stressing the role of parliaments, the study then analyses the current institutional arrangements for ESDP at the EU level in terms of legitimacy or − more concretely − voice, scrutiny, transparency and accountability. Based on an analysis where parliaments at the EU level come in and where their room for manoeuvre is limited the paper concludes with ten options for prospective parliamentary participation in ESDP.
