The European Commission represents a notable organisational innovation in the way that executive politicians at the top, i.e. the commissioners, have their primary affiliation to the international level. Thus, the Commission constitutes a laboratory for experiments in supranational institutionbuilding. In this paper these facts will be given a closer look.
Guri Rosén and Silje H. Tørnblad seek to answer questions, to what extent, and how, does expertise from the Commission influence the European Parliament’s positions in the article in the European Politics and Society.
In this paper Egeberg and Heskestad 'unpack' the demographic composition in terms of nationality of the three latest commissions’ cabinets. Based on studies of comparable phenomena, they find reason to believe that decomposition of a particular demographical cluster within an organisational unit reduces the impact of such demographical factors on officials’ decision behaviour.

Jarle Trondal and Marianne Riddervold (Høgskolen i Innlandet/NUPI) have published a new article in Comparative European Politics. The paper examines how the European Commission exceeds limited legal Treaty provisions in foreign and security policy (CFSP).
This paper takes a look as so far undocumented relationships between EU agencies and the Commission. Drawing on new data sources the paper shows how EU agencies might have become parts of Commission departments' portfolios, indicating centralization of EU executive power.

Eva Krick and Åse Gornitzka have published an article in Innovation: The European Journal of Social Science Research, tracing the claim of a “scientisation” of EU governance.
How does the EU's organisational structure affect its impact on domestic governments? This paper investigates Council and Commission influence on national governance. By empirical data from Norway and Sweden it is shown that while the Council consolidates administrative hierarchies, the Commission disrupts such traditional structures by by-passing them.

The authors argue in this article that Europe has in fact had a kind of executive order for centuries but that we only now see that the contours of this order are qualitatively different from the intergovernmental order inherited from the past.

ARENA's Jarle Trondal has been awarded 'Best article of 2018' by the 'Norwegian Journal of Political Science' for his article about Norwegian civil servants' work on EU and EEA affairs.
European decision-makers point to flexible relationships with the EU as a way to maintain their countries’ independence and autonomy. New research from ARENA suggests that political differentiation might in fact lead to the opposite, which does not bode well for the UK after Brexit.
Drawing on fresh empirical data, this paper accounts for the inter-penetration between the European Commission and national regulatory agencies. Focusing on the environmental domain, a comparative Nordic analysis shows that integration differs, in part due to organizational features and administrative culture.
This paper discusses the ‘agencification’ and fragmentation of national governments, and questions whether a ‘methodological nationalism’ has hindered us from seeing the emerging executive centre at the level above, i.e. the European Commission, and the re-coupling of nationally decoupled agencies into a multilevel Union administration.
The European Commission’s Directorate-General for Employment, Social Affairs and Equal Opportunities organizes the Participatory Forum'Building Together a Society for All – A Circus against Exclusion' which will take place in Brussels on 19 and 20 October 2010. During the session on 'Social Inclusion of migrant youth: Breaking the inter-generational transmission of poverty and social exclusion' Scientific Coordinator Katrine Fangen will present results from the EUMARGINS research project. Participation in the forum is open for the public.
The aim of the EUMARGINS policy report is to inform the current EU policy debate and policy framework in the areas of social inclusion and exclusion of young people with immigrant background. The policy report presents a summary of current EU policy frames, discusses how EUMARGINS research results can inform policy and concludes with concrete policy recommendations.
