 The Liberalization and European Reregulation of Air Transport

Show Summary Details


Outlines the process by which intergovernmental mechanisms for the regulation of civil aviation in Europe were replaced by European Community mechanisms. First, it describes the original preference of member‐state governments for national control of international air transport services. Then, it discusses the synergy between transnational industry actors and supranational organizations that conspired to undermine the status quo. Finally, it examines the EC policy‐making process, charting the response of member‐state governments to these pressures for Europeanization of the civil aviation sector.
