The paper discusses the effects of European integration on national administrations. Focusing on the Nordic countries, it is found that both an intergovernmental and an organizational perspective have something to contribute to our understanding of Europeanization.
This article looks more closely at administrative decentralization by the creation of quasi-autonomous agencies. Strategically located, agencies are typically perceived as constituents of an evolving EU networked-administrative system; whether this argument holds truth is evaluated against a case study of EU competition policy.
Strengthening of European integration has also had administrative implications, such as the development of a networked-administrative system where national agencies serve simultaneously the Commission and national authorities. The paper discusses the development of such a structure of cross-cutting cleavages and loyalties, focusing on the case of the Danish IT and Telecom Agency.
