Governance is the new buzzword to capture policy making in inter-locking systems. This book offers both: On the one hand, it conceptualises this theoretical approach to the evolution of a Euro-specific type of governance and its dissemination into member-state systems. On the other hand, empirical analyses investigate the evolution and transformation of governing patterns in different policy settings and member states.
