The EU is frequently understood as a special kind of governance system characterized by its strong degree of interpenetration of different levels of government and a plethora of interactions between EU institutions, administrations from national and subnational levels, as well as organized non-state interests.

This paper accounts for the dynamics of the EU's Common Commercial Policy (CCP). With the Commission acting as agent in international trading regimes, it is clear that intergovernmentalism does not fully capture its role.
