Abstract: This article analyzes the development of parliamentary institutions in processes of regional integration. Its focus is on two cases, the European Union and MERCOSUR, and their respective parliamentary bodies: the European Parliament and the Joint Parliamentary Commission of MERCOSUR. The article looks into whether and how ongoing processes of regional integration are transforming the historical role performed by parliamentary bodies, and evaluates the degree to which path-dependency impinges on such transformations
El trabajo analiza el rol de las construcciones parlamentarias en los procesos de integración regional a partir de los casos de la UE y el MERCOSUR, es decir, de la trayectoria político-institucional del Parlamento Europeo y de la Comisión Parlamentaria Conjunta del MERCOSUR. Asimismo, da cuenta de hasta qué punto el marco regional lleva a una transformación del rol históricamente asumido por Parlamentos y Congresos a nivel nacional y regional, así como de qué forma la transformación institucional y política de aquellas construcciones se encuentra condicionada por su propio sendero.
