Power Distribution among Party Groups in European Parliament I – VII according to Shapley-Owen Extended Indices
The author examines the power distribution of Party Groups in the European Parliament (1979-2014). The author proceeds from the Shapley-Owen extended indices to assess the influence of the eight Party Groups, and compares the dynamics of changes in the indices of power from term to term with the strategies of Party Groups during each convocation. On the results of the analysis, the author define the successful strategies and steps of the Party Groups that differ depending on the position of the Party Group according to the institutional features of the European Parliament (key largest group, niche group or small disseminated group).
