It is often assumed that the European Commission is a unitary actor, with a shared set of values. Liesbet Hooghe's book questions this assumption through interviews with over one hundred officials on central issues in the governance of Europe. She finds that officials in fact have diverse views, are not "socialized" during their time at the Commission, and that contention over key issues within the Commission echoes debates among Europe's wider public. The Commission is not, she argues, a determinedly pro-integrationist organization with closer union as its aim.

Review:

"This book by an American political scientist examines the views and preferences of senior officials of the European Commission on the desirable form of European integration... A book for specialists on the EU." Choice

"Hooghe accompanies her quantitative analysis with an elegant theoretical argument, as well as extracts from her interviews that add context and provide a broader understanding of the top officials' Weltanschauung and perception of issues.... Hooghe's book offers an excellent scholarly analysis of the Commission staff. It will be difficult to overlook her findings in future research on the EU Commission." Perspectives on Politics

Book Description CAMBRIDGE UNIVERSITY PRESS, United Kingdom, 2002. Paperback. Condition: New. New.. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. What kind of European Union do top Commission officials want? Should the European Union be supranational or intergovernmental? Should it promote market-liberalism or regulated capitalism? Should the Commission be Europe s government or its civil service? This 2002 book examines top officials preferences on these questions through analysis of unique data from 137 interviews. Understanding the forces that shape human preferences is the subject of intense debate. Hooghe demonstrates that the Commission has difficulty shaping its employees preferences in the fluid multi-institutional context of the European Union. Top officials preferences are better explained by experiences outside rather than inside the Commission: political party, country, and prior work leave deeper imprints than directorate-general or cabinet. Preferences are also influenced more by internalized values than by self-interested career calculation. Hooghe s findings are surprising, and will challenge a number of common assumptions about the workings and motives of the European Commission. Seller Inventory # AAV9780521001434
