Looking at three different perspectives on the changes of the European Parliament: 1. Overall success of the EP in transfroming consitutional positions: 2. Influence of EP in budgetary politics - Budgetary committee as a forrunner for the other committees; from few and conflicting contacts to trialogue meetings. 3. Parliamentary oversight has let to greater importance in response to the higher visibility of the impact of EU laws! Interesting - reports, delegations, question times etc. lead to control of Commission, independent regulatory agencicies and control of implementation of EU law - Greek fine! Good historical overview and insights to recent achievements of the EP. Importance of the work of committees is stressed.
