This chapter deals with a selection of interdisciplinary factors which contribute to an understanding of the relationships within and rationales of European administrative law. The first section begins with an analysis of the concept of cycles and phases of administrative activities. Next, it considers the application and comparison of state administrative models to those of the EU. It then turns to the debate concerning the concept of ‘new public management’, which has attempted to identify areas of public administration in need of reform and to put forward alternative concepts for its structuring and direction. The second section offers reflections on two approaches: first, the application of principal-agent theory in the context of the delegation and organization of competences on the EU level; secondly concepts of regulatory competition which arise in the context of multi-level regulatory systems.

Keywords:   administrative law, state administrative models, EU, new public management, principal-agent theory, regulatory competition
