Abstract (Swedish)
Denna uppsats behandlar Europaparlamentets roll i förhandlingarna om ett utträdesavtal enligt artikel 50 FEU. Det teoretiska perspektivet är multi-level governance genom vilket Europaparlamentet ses som, från medlemsstaterna oberoende aktör som kan ha intresse av att påverka förhandlingarna och utträdesavtalet. Europaparlamentet måste enligt Artikel 50(3) FEU ge sitt godkännande till utträdesavtalet.

Uppsatsen visar också att den generella proceduren för att sluta internationella avtal i 218 FEUF med stor sannolikhet också är tillämpligt på proceduren för sluta ett utträdesavtal. Genom den generella proceduren för att sluta avtal antagligen är tillämplig på proceduren för att sluta utträdesavtalet så ökar blandat annat Europaparlamentets möjlighet till tillgång till information om förhandlingarnas utveckling.

Abstract
This thesis discusses the European Parliament’s role in the procedure for concluding a withdrawal agreement under Article 50 TEU. The theoretical base for the discussions is multi-level governance. Through the Multi-level governance perspective, the European Parliament can be seen as an independent actor from the Member States that might want to influence the negotiations and content of the withdrawal agreement. According to Article 50(3) TEU the European Parliament must give its consent to any withdrawal agreement. The European Parliament could use this form of veto-power to influence the negotiation process from start to finish, and force the other Unions institutions and the United Kingdom to listen to its demands. As the European... (More)

As the European Parliament has done under previous negotiations of international agreements. This thesis also shows that the general procedure for concluding international agreements in 218 TFEU probably also apply on the procedure for concluding the withdrawal agreement. That the general procedure applies would mean that, among other things, that the European Parliament could argue for access to information on the progress of the negotiations of a withdrawal agreement.
