Preview

The Politics of Europeanization looks at the political aspects of European integration from the viewpoint of domestic politics. In so doing, it goes beyond the classic analysis of ‘how policies are made in Brussels’ and raises instead the question ‘what is the power of Europe in national contexts?’.Whereas standard books on domestic politics and European integration look at different countries one by one, this volume embraces an innovative perspective based on specific concepts, indicators and a broad range of thematic issues. The contributors explain and question the ‘power of Europe’ by providing theoretical and empirical perspectives on domestic politics and institutions, government and administration, public policies, political actors, and business groups. The book has its origins in an international workshop on Europeanization organized while the editors were at the University of Bradford in May 2000, and a panel at the Political Studies Association annual conference the previous month; these initiatives were taken in the context of establishing the ‘Research Unit on Europeanization’ at the University of Bradford as a forum for activity in this area. It offers a new research agenda for the nascent literature on Europeanization. The book is arranged in six parts: I. Theorizing Europeanization (three chapters); II. Comparing Institutional Contexts (three chapters); III. Europeanization and Policy Analysis (three chapters); Interest Groups and Europeanization (two chapters); V. Understanding ‘Europe’ as a Policy Model (two chapters); and VI. Conclusion.
