The European Parliament (EP) is a unique type of parliament among the world’s legislatures. It is the only directly elected supranational parliament with extensive law-making abilities. Harmen van der Veer investigates how nationality, party and ideological factors affect the ways in which legislators cooperate in the EP. His main research question is: how and under what circumstances do legislators cooperate along national lines or along European party group and ideological lines?
