Is there a democratic gap in the Banking Union?

The creation of the Banking Union in 2012 entailed an additional transfer of competence to the European Union (EU). As Member States continue to play an important role in this policy area, original democratic accountability mechanisms had to be devised whereby both the European Parliament and national parliaments play an important role. Also, the European Parliament's role is not limited to holding the European Central Bank to account, but it is called to control the actions of other EU agencies. This presentation aims to offer a balance of the state of democratic accountability in the Banking Union ten years after its creation. In particular, it seeks to provide an all-encompassing view with a view to identifying potential gaps.
