Dr. Wendler reviews the involvement of the German Bundestag in European governance in relation to three competing models of political representation in the EU: an intergovernmental model based on the principle of delegation and control towards domestic executives, a supranational model assuming the emergence of representation and decision-making on behalf of a European citizenry, and a demoi-based model conceptualising representation in the EU from the public debate and sovereign decision-making within the public spheres and democratic institutions of Member States within the EU.
