(p.3) Introduction
The Engines of European Integration

Mark A. Pollack (Contributor Webpage)

Oxford University Press

The European Union is composed of its member states, yet these states have created and delegated increasing powers to a number of supranational organizations, including the executive Commission, the European Court of Justice and the European Parliament. Drawing from principal‐agent analyses of delegation, agency and agenda setting, seeks to analyse and explain the delegation of powers by governmental principals to supranational agents, as well as the subsequent role played by those agents in the process of European integration.

Keywords:   agenda‐setting, delegation, European Commission, European Court of Justice, European integration, European Parliament, European Union, principal‐agent model, supranational organizations
