This chapter introduces a further layer in institution-building and maps those institutions and actors who, on the whole, have been delegated powers by the political actors, often with the explicit intention of placing their rule-making activities at one remove from political decision-making. Such non-majoritarian agencies, as they are often referred to, have become in recent years an important part of the overall political and legal systems of the EU, without however being reflected at the treaty level.

Keywords:   European Union, political systems, legal systems, institution building, non-majoritarian agencies
