This chapter discusses the three models or perspectives — functional, organizational, and procedural — that are particularly helpful in understanding EU administration and administrative law. The functional aspect of administration refers to the totality of the tasks of administration, no matter who undertakes them and how they are carried out. The organizational perspective emphasizes the organization and structure of the institutions, bodies, and actors engaged in undertaking such tasks. A procedural understanding of administration observes the processes which link the various actors and authorities in the performance of administrative functions.

Keywords:   EU, administrative law, functional, organizational, procedural
