Abstract (Swedish)
This study aims to present the relationships between the European Commission and a member state of the European Union during two different phases of the enforcement process of EU legislation and to explain how these relationships change. The relationships are studied and presented using a simple Principal-Agent model, in which the two main figures change sides between the different phases.
The research material mainly consists of already existing empirical research, but in this study put in a different theoretical framework.
The study shows that the preconditions for a successful relationship changes between the phases. The change is caused by the member state’s greater likeliness of having a change in the two key factors; interest and... (More)
This study aims to present the relationships between the European Commission and a member state of the European Union during two different phases of the enforcement process of EU legislation and to explain how these relationships change. The relationships are studied and presented using a simple Principal-Agent model, in which the two main figures change sides between the different phases.
The research material mainly consists of already existing empirical research, but in this study put in a different theoretical framework.
The study shows that the preconditions for a successful relationship changes between the phases. The change is caused by the member state’s greater likeliness of having a change in the two key factors; interest and information. At the same time the Commissions shows almost no change in interest and information.
The study also shows that in the second phase of the implementation process the monitoring instruments, which are used to eliminate asymmetries in information between the Commission and the member state, are insufficient. (Less)
