An examination is made of the structure of the administrative system of the European Union (EU). Three general arguments are put forward: that the development of the EU’s administration has been conditioned by the nature of the EU as a political system, but that EU administration has similarly had an impact on the EU as a political system; that the entrenchment of national administrations in the EU bureaucratic system has had important consequences for its functioning and operation; and that national administrations have been affected, but not transformed, by the development of the EU. After outlining the features that characterize the EU’s political system, the chapter examines how national administrations have penetrated EU decision–making structures and institutions, and looks at the impact of this process at the European level. It then considers how national administrations have been affected by the development of the EU (European integration and Europeanization). Finally, the chapter provides an assessment of the EU’s administrative capacity.
