Chapter 10 studies mechanisms of socialization and re‐socialization among domestic government officials attending EU committees. It is argued that domestic government officials participating in EU committees supplement pre‐existing role perceptions with supranational roles under certain conditions. EU committees are seen as transformative institutions that accompany a partial re‐socialization of the committee participants. The data demonstrates that domestic civil servants become re‐socialized due to their intensity of participation on EU committees. Contrary to neo‐functionalist assumptions, however, the length of participation on EU committees does not significantly impact on the re‐socialization of committee participants. The data also demonstrates that supranational roles are indeed secondary to pre‐existing intergovernmental and departmental roles. Consistent with the idea of compound executive orders, the emergence of supranational roles among EU committee participants does not replace pre‐established roles within intergovernmental institutions such as the Council of Ministers.
