Abstract

This article investigates the extent to which post-communist political elites favoured the intervention of external organisations in parliamentary work. It draws on data from a survey of parliamentary elites from the beginning of the transition towards democracy in the four Visegrad countries. The results show a much more complex picture than usually assumed, with important variation both between the four legislatures and within the same parliaments. The varying levels of support for external actors' involvement in parliamentary work had different triggering mechanisms connected among other factors to Members’ of Parliament socio-demographic profile, ideological outlook, and the institutional role they envisioned for parliament.
