This chapter evaluates the role of political economy and domestic institutional arrangements in the materialisation of hegemonic discourses. It examines whether the nature of political economy is sufficient to account for the materialisation process of hegemonic discourses and evaluates how useful is the ‘goodness-of-fit’ hypothesis found in Europeanisation studies. This chapter also analyses whether the combination of the nature of political economy and the nature of interest representation can account for the materialisation process of hegemonic discourses.

Keywords: political economy; institutional arrangements; hegemonic discourses; goodness-of-fit; European studies; interest representation
