Chapter 3 explores the new communicative universe that has been established by the European Union, which coins the linkages between supranational and national governance in its own right, not least by dealing with knowledge as an especially important power resource. In particular, the chapter focuses on the legal framework for the manifold communicative links between EU institutions and institutions at the member state level. Thus, the Commission is presented as a central actor in the European communicative universe. It has established a multitude of mechanisms ranging from consultation processes on the basis of green and white papers to notification procedures which serve as well-functioning linkages for information processing and policy-making in an ever penetrated polity. Beside the Commission, the Council – including the COREPER and its working groups – constitutes a further communication centre in the EU. This institution, the new communicative universe produces specific challenges for member state governments and administrations (exemplified by the German government and ministries) as it increases demands on domestic coordination to improve efficient and effective interest representation at the European level.

Keywords:   communicative universe, knowledge as power, communicative links, policy-making, Commission, Council, member state governments and administrations
