(p.31) 2 The Governance of Compliance
Compliance and the Enforcement of EU Law

Edoardo Chiti

Oxford University Press

Compliance is usually associated with those means of enforcement based upon coercion. In the European Union (EU) legal order, compliance with EU law by the addressees of EU law and policies — both private actors and national public powers — typically refers to means of enforcement, such as administrative control and litigation in the courts, followed by sanctions. This chapter focuses on the variety of steering mechanisms that combine authority with non-coercive elements. It is organized as follows. Section 2 identifies the steering instruments that have emerged and consolidated in the last two decades. Section 3 assesses their novelty as modes of governance. Section 4 discusses some of the problems raised by the functioning of the emerging governance of compliance. Finally, Section 5 focuses is devoted to the perspectives of development of the governance of compliance.
