Constantly evolving, and with far-reaching implications, European Union policy-making is of vital importance to the politics of the European Union. Featuring work by expert contributors, Policy-Making in the European Union, Seventh Edition, explores the link between the modes and mechanisms of EU policy-making and its implementation at the national level, helping students to engage with key policy-related issues.

First defining the processes, institutions, and modes of policy-making, the text then analyzes a wide range of policy areas in greater detail than any competing text—from economics to the environment, and from security to the single market—in both a practical and theoretical context, navigating policy in all its complexity. It concludes with a clear assessment of the challenges that have shaped and will continue to shape policy-making, including enlargement, the implementation of the Lisbon Treaty, and the impacts of the global financial crisis.
