Abstract
The countries of the European Union are in an ongoing phase of integration.

The countries of the European Union are in an ongoing phase of integration.

The study examines four pub-lic authorities through survey questions to the officials. The authorities included in the study are the ministry of foreign affairs, the ministry of health, the ministry of finance and the internal revenue service in an attempt to discern changes and ef-fects of the Europeanization process. A similar examination of Swedish adminis-trations has been done before; however Polish authorities have yet not fallen under much scrutiny which is why further research on the subject is essential. Hence the study attempts to show focal effects of Europeanization on the chosen authorities in Poland. The theories employed present the state on the basis of a rule- following top- down process where both rationalist and sociological institutionalism makes an impression on the European government versus governance discourse.

Key words: Europeanization, Poland, policy adaptation, integration, institutional change. (Less)
