    [From the Introduction]. This paper looks at the role of parties in the European Union in two parts. First, it examines the overall role of parties in the Union, and traces the similarities to and differences from various national party systems. The first section defines how the institutional setting for transnational parties differs from that of national parties in Europe and the United States. In the second section, the paper looks at the effects of these institutional peculiarities within the European Parliament. In that section, partisan cohesion and partisan conflict in the Parliament are examined to illustrate the effects of the institutional context.
