Editorial Reviews


"Contributing quite effectively to ongoing debates in European integration theory between intergovernmentalist, neofuntionalist, and multilevel governance approaches, this book should be of considerable interest, not just to EU scholars, but more broadly to those interested in how external challenges (of which Europeanization is just one example) can prompt domestic change.... Both ambitious and convincing, Borzel's study of institutional adaptation in Germany and Spain deserves wide attention.... Recommended for graduate collections and above." Choice

"Börzel makes an important contribution to the growing body of literature on the impact of institutions on choices...This is one of the very few studies that creatively combines and integrates rational choice and constructivist explanations. The attempt enriches our understanding of how policymakers make choices." Perspectives on Politics

"Börzel's work is an excellent piece of scholarship that provides great insight into the effects of the Europeanization of public policy and similarities in multilevel intergovernmental cooperation. Many facets of her work yearn for further investigation...as always, however, excellent pieces of research inevitably raise more questions than they answer." Governance April 04

Book Description

This book reveals how the institutional structures of different countries have been changed in different ways by membership in the European Union. In particular, she shows how European Union membership has affected the relationship between the center and the regions. In studies of Germany and Spain, the author shows how Europeanization has undermined the regions, but then led to cooperation between center and regions in getting the most from the European Union.
