Policy-Making and Diversity in Europe: Escape from Deadlock
Cambridge University Press, Nov 28, 1999 - Political Science - 113 pages
Policy-Making and Diversity in Europe examines the European Union and its policy-making processes. In particular, it asks how an institution which is so riddled with veto points manages to be such an active policy maker. Héritier argues that the diversity of actors' interests and the need for consensus in European institutions would almost inevitably lead to deadlock, were it not for the existence of creative informal strategies and policy-making patterns. Termed by the author 'subterfuge', these strategies prevent political impasses and 'make Europe work'.
