Paul Craig

Oxford University Press

This chapter explores the role played by agencies in the European Union (EU). It begins with consideration of the rationale for agencies in nation states and the EU respectively, followed by examination as to how EU agencies have evolved. It also discusses the classification of EU agencies in the light of their powers and functions, and explains the legal limits that constrain the powers given to them. It then analyses the legal, political, and financial mechanisms for controlling agencies and rendering them accountable. The chapter concludes with discussion as to whether the powers of agencies ought to be extended.
