Approaching Europe: Europeanisation and accession

Show Summary Details


This chapter commences the study of adjustment within UK central government. It examines the process of coming to grips with integration: from the early 1960s, when the Macmillan government applied for membership to the EEC, up to accession. In examining the adaptation of the UK central government, the discussion argues that Whitehall's adaptation to Europe began well before UK accession.
