Multi-level Governance


Oxford University Press

Stephen George considers the application of multi‐level governance to developments in the European Union. While multi‐level governance developed from and has been most often applied to studies of the European Union, its capacity to explain developments remains strongly contested. This chapter outlines the main applications of the concept in a number of policy areas and evaluates the position of multi‐level governance alongside competing approaches in the current ‘state of the debate’ on the European Union.

Keywords:   European Union, governance, intergovernmentalism, multi‐level governance, neofunctionalism
