Show Summary Details


This chapter examines the character of EU governance. What are the rules of the game at the EU level? Where do national governments fit in with EU policy-making? What are the pressures emanating from the EU system of governance that impact upon British central government? This chapter intends to reveal the rules and norms at the EU level within which British central government has to operate. This EU framework is important for a range of reasons, but most centrally because it is the main source of Europeanisation effects.
