Managing And Enforcing Compliance With EU Law: The Perspective Of The EU Commission
Source: Utrecht University
Studies on EU policy-making generally disregard the key role played by the Commission as an enforcement agent responsible for the instigation and continuation of infringement cases. Furthermore, the Commission employs both amicable ('Management') and coercive means ('Enforcement') to induce compliance by member states, which are reflected in the different stages of the infringement proceeding. In contrast to current research, this paper incorporates the perspective of the Commission on non-compliance.
