National parliaments near-universally endorsed in the European Union constitution-building process ? Case for national parliaments a composite one: different scholarly approaches and national and European institutions support a greater role for national parliaments for different reasons ? The overall endorsement of national parliaments remains a balancing act between competing agendas ? Future reforms and treaty-drafting efforts most likely will continue to favour approaches of open-ended political content ? No risk for the national governments nor Union institutions.
