Abstract

The article explains normative and political aspects of the freedom of associa­tion exercised by European parties. After an overview of theoretical and historical back­ground, the article opens scientific and normative concepts of political party and political party operating at European level (Europarty), views the Europarties comparatively to political parties of the EU member state Estonia, and to political representation in the European Parliament. The author, who has legal research background, has aimed at politically con­textualizing normative developments.
