Chapter 10 argues that analysing compliance and enforcement is a helpful way for understanding how procedural and institutional settings influence patterns of cooperation and conflict between member states and the European Commission. In order to get robust findings the research presented focuses on two cases of inconvenient commitment by analysing (1) the control of member state subsidies and (2) measures taken to eradicate BSE. Both cases show that compliance management is an iterative political process whose dynamics are pushed and formed by the tensions between supranational legal norms, national governmental interests and sub-national interest groups.
