Show Summary Details


This chapter takes stock of the Europeanisation process across the board by evaluating the degree and extent of change that has taken place in Whitehall in the light of our institutionalist approach. It advances a model of Europeanisation to explain the character of adjustment that has come about. First, the chapter uses historical institutionalism as a way of taking stock of developments. Then, it moves on to explain why these changes have taken place, before returning to the model of Europeanisation and adapting and refining it in the light of the findings.
