Abstract
This study focuses on the implementation of the Solvency II directive, a very
important policy for the insurance community in the European Union. Results
from surveys included in the implementation process show that the process
implied certain aspects which cannot be prescribed to the pluralist democracy that
usually describes the European policy process. In order to analyze this process the
dissertation is a case study which uses a qualitative text study. The primary
material are reports published by European authority EIOPA which discuss the
findings from five quantitative impact studies. Pluralist and elitist public policy
theories are used as separate indicators to the analysis.
The results from this analysis... (More)

theories are used as separate indicators to the analysis.
The results from this analysis concluded the process to be of pluralist
character in a later stage of the process, whilst the initial phases were rather elitist.
This shows how the European policy process has different faces according to what
policy you analyze. (Less)
