Despite advances in contemporary research on the European Administrative Space (EAS), no widespread understanding about its meaning, mechanisms and significance yet exists. This research agenda paper offers a comprehensive conceptualisation of EAS and takes stock of accumulated lessons learned.

In this paper the author asks how the EU is utilizing national bureaucracies and finds evidence of Europeanization of maritime inspections, adding to the body of evidence suggesting a new international, multilevel administrative order with stronger traits of direct implementation is emerging.
In spite of relentless criticism over many years bureaucracies and bureaucrats are possibly experiencing a renaissance. The aim of this paper is to make sense of this puzzle by exploring bureaucracy as a specific way of organizing public administration in democratic societies. Through what processes and under what conditions is administrative organization likely to come close to the Weberian ideal type?
