This article,written as a review of three contributions on social constructivism, is equally conceived as an evaluation of this approach with regards to its usefulness to IR theory. While admitting that social constructivism has added important insights, it is nevertheless argued that there are important lacunaes to be filled and unclarities to be clarified.

Drawing on institutional theory and sociology, this paper attempts to explain the contradictory trends in EU integration and implementation. Divergence between different sectors and countries is perceived as reflecting organizational dynamics and national re-contextualisation, both insufficiently explained by traditional theories of integration.

To this end it applies a comparative framework with four strategies, the application of which to the EU yields a comprehensive test of the EU's uniqueness.

While the integration of levels of governance has become a commonplace in integration studies, few attempts have been made at actually operationalising what such vertical integration implies. This article is an attempt to fill this lacuna by studying the degree of supranational allegiance among civil servants and how cross-national variation in this field may be accounted for.
