This chapter concludes the book by reflecting on the key characteristics of the response in Whitehall and on the strengths and weaknesses of Whitehall's adaptation. The examination of change has been facilitated by the development of tools of analysis derived from two approaches: Europeanisation and historical institutionalism. The book also highlighted the importance of significant individuals in facilitating change and the importance of exploring matters concerning the effectiveness of the UK approach to the EU.
