European Integration and Supranational Governance

The contributions in this book address several themes relating to the institutional development of the European Community, and range in focus from the specific to the panoramic. Some analyse specific policy sectors such as free movement, competition policy, external trade, monetary and exchange‐rate policies, social provisions, structural policy, telecommunications, environment, and foreign and security policies. Others discuss overarching configurations of EC policy domains and relations between EC entities. The chapters are organized into three groups: first, those that involve a transaction‐based theory of integration; second, those whose primary concern is institutionalization, including both the evolution of rules and organizations, and the changing pattern of control by member states; third, those offering a broad perspective on the development of the EC in its organizational structures and its legitimacy in the eyes of public opinion.
