 Eurocratic Regulation

Show Summary Details


Examines European Union oversight of UK public sector activity, over compliance with EU norms and financial rules. EU regulators, and particularly those within the European Commission, possess financial sanctions to an extent unusual among domestic regulators over the UK public sector. However, the tendency towards politicization in many domains appeared to generate what, in terms of the rationality of the EU, looked like under‐enforcement.
