Fromage, Diane. European Economic Governance and Parliamentary Involvement: Some Shortcomings of the Article 13 Conference and a Solution. Les cahiers européens n°03/2015

This paper is devoted to the analysis of the Interparliamentary Conference on Stability, Economic Coordination and Governance created in 2013. It first studies the conditions for its emergence and shows how some of the arrangements in place at that point, in particular in terms of a closer cooperation among a more reduced number of national parliaments, did not last over time. Further to this it demonstrates that several factors exist that question the long-term efficiency of this Conference, at least in terms of its contribution to more democratic accountability within the European Union. Therefore, this paper calls for the creation of a new, more institutionalised and strongly empowered arena for interparliamentary cooperation in the field of economic governance without however taking the form of a second European parliamentary chamber.

Gross, Vlad. Business as unusual: Credit rating agencies’ lobbying success during the EU financial crisis., Les cahiers européens n°04/2015

This study aims to explain the variation in lobbying success among the participants in the consultation on credit rating agencies’ regulation in the European Commission. The independence and quality of credit ratings has long been brought into question, not only because of the possible conflicts of interest between what is largely a “private business”, but also because of the failure of the rating industry to signal the default of important financial enterprises. Prompted by the economic crisis that started in 2008, the regulatory framework on credit ratings was a new initiative in the financial sector. The empirical analysis shows that public interest groups were the winners of this process. Factors related to the policy context and the attitudes of key policy-makers had an important effect on determining the winners and the losers in this case.
