(p.97) 7 Policy‐Making in the EU: Familiar Ambitions in Unfamiliar Settings?
From the Nation State to Europe

Jeremy Richardson

Oxford University Press

This chapter focuses on two sets of stakeholders who have traditionally worked together in Western European states to shape and influence public policy: bureaucrats and interest groups. Its central thesis is that these two sets are increasingly filling the ‘hollow core’ of the EU, and provide much of the impetus for making and maintaining policy at the European level. The problem for political scientists is that the process of decision‐making, dependent and controllable within a national setting, is now self‐sustaining and uncontrollable in the EU setting.

Keywords:   EU, policy‐making
