In order to understand the notion of adapting to European integration both within government and in the wider political system, this chapter develops a conceptual framework through reference to ‘Europeanisation’ and institutionalism. Europeanisation dissects the phenomenon of adapting to integration. The discussion augments Europeanisation by using historical institutionalism to explore, over time, the adjustments of UK central government to the EU.
