Compliance, Competition and Communication: Different Approaches of European Governance and Their Impact on National Institutions
24 Pages Posted: 13 Sep 2005
This analysis focuses on the relationship between supranational regulatory policy and national administrative change. We argue that the potential for change and cross-national convergence varies with the particular governance pattern employed, namely coercion, competition and communication. We identify the behavioural rationalities that guide the national bureaucratic responses and point to certain paradoxes with regard to the extent and direction of change.
