New article in Revue française d'administration publique
ARENA's Morten Egeberg has been invited to contribute to a special issue on European public administration in the Revue française d'administration publique that is published by l'École nationale d'administration. The English title of the French article is "EU Administration: Centre Formation and Multilevelness".
From the English abstract: National administrations, or more correctly, parts of national administrations, have to some extent become parts of an EU administration as well. Arguably, this is due to quite particular institutional developments: at the European level it is the consolidation of the European Commission as a relatively independent executive body that makes the difference; at the national level it is the tendency to organise regulatory authorities at arm's length from ministerial departments. Such de-coupling of agencies at the national level might have been conducive to re-coupling of the same agencies to the Commission and the EU-level agencies often in the form of issue-specific transnational networks.
