This introduction is organized as follows: The first part outlines the compound nature of an emergent European Executive Order. The second part suggests a theoretical departure for the volume and a brief literature review of recent research. Finally, the third part offers an outlook on the individual chapters of this volume. This chapter adds two new important steps to our understanding of compound executive orders: Firstly, by arguing that an emergent European Executive Order consists of a limited set of coexisting decision‐making dynamics: supranational, departmental, epistemic, and intergovernmental dynamics. Secondly, by suggesting causal mechanisms that may explain why certain dynamics gain prevalence in certain situations. This chapter suggests that an organizational theory approach may shed light both on how executive orders emerge and how institutions mould the behaviour of civil servants embedded in such an order.

Keywords:   Compound orders, departmental, epistemic, European Commission, EU committees, EU‐level agencies, executive governance, intergovernmental, organizational theory approach, supranational
