Chapter 2 introduces the Commission organization and personnel. The Commission is pictured as a compound system of international bureaucracy, balancing departmental, epistemic, supranational, and intergovernmental dynamics in everyday decision‐making processes. The conditional mobilization of each of these dynamics is arguably conditioned by the Commission's organizational structure. The chapter also describes the Commission as balancing and integrating an autonomous civil service staffed mainly by permanent officials, however, supplemented by temporary short‐term contracted personnel from the member states.
