Executive Power of the European Union

Deirdre Curtin

Oxford University Press

This chapter deals with the issue of ‘transparency’ and the manner in which this principle has evolved, both in law and in practice, to constitute a salient part of the evolving operating system of the EU. It provides clear examples of how the notion of openness or transparency is now, in the contemporary understanding of the EU as a political system, regarded as necessary to confer greater legitimacy on the institutions in the eyes of the citizens.

Keywords:   European Union, transparency, EU political system, openness
