Abstract

This dissertation is guided by an overall interest in the manifold links between politics and EU economic policy in action. The EU is sometimes described as a ‘policy-making state’ or ‘system’ based on the insight that in terms of policy generation, the EU’s capacities have come to resemble those of traditional states. Policy-making in the EU, as in other political systems, can be characterized as a multi-stage process, although the process is arguably more complex than in nation-states because it takes place in a more dynamic institutional setting and involves a variety of actors and multiple levels. The contributions assembled here move through the policy process and the various levels to provide a broad picture about the making, application and reception of EU economic policies. While each of the chapters engages with a different stage of this process, this is not based on the assumption that these stages are always clearly separated in political practice or that they follow a universal sequence. Rather, the underlying assumption is that each of these stages of the policy cycle follows a different logic and thus requires a different theoretical toolbox to be analyzed and understood.
