Abstract [en]

This article investigates the involvement of sub-national authorities and national parliaments in policy coordination in the area of welfare policy in the European Union (EU). Their involvement is analysed in terms of influence in policy output, ex-post evaluation and monitoring of the executive. The findings are set against the four typologies of consitutional arrangements prevalent in Euorpe. The article concludes that the involvement of sub-national authorities is uneven, depending on their constitutional structures, as fedeal and regionalized states in general have more elaborate mecanisms, but some centralized states have sophisticated systems, too, which point to exisiting governance practices also playing a role. Throughout the EU, national parliaments reain largely decoupled from the open method of coordination. In the case of both sub-national authorities and parliaments, their input is greater in the preparatory phase, than in the ex-post evaluation, which has implications for democratic policy-making.
