Résumé
EN
Conducting in-depth investigations is an ancient and essential right of parliaments in Europe. Yet, despite a provision of the Lisbon treaty, Parliament still has a limited institutional capacity to conduct inquiries. The study discusses the theoretical basis of parliamentary investigation, compares recent committees of inquiries and develops recommendations for up-grading Parliament’s capacity.
