Abstract

There is a rich and growing body of literature dealing with the nature of Community administration, to which this paper contributes. Part I of the paper deals with the evolution of Community administration over time, since the inception of the EEC. It charts the development of differing forms of Community administration and the way in which these were shaped by Treaty amendment, Community legislation and political forces. The focus in Part II of the paper shifts to analysis of typology of Community administration, including within the analysis more detailed elaboration of the nature of direct and shared/mixed administration and the factors that have influenced the respective powers accorded to the Community and the Member States in those areas where administrative power is shared. The discussion in Part III concentrates on accountability, with analysis of legal, political and substantive/output conceptions of accountability.

Keywords: Community Administration, Shared Administration, Direct Administration, Agencies, Accountability
