Compound machinery of the Commission

(p.91) Chapter 5 Compound machinery of the Commission
An Emergent European Executive Order

Jarle Trondal (Contributor Webpage)

Oxford University Press

Chapter 5 benefits from an original and rich body of comparative surveys and interview data derived from current and former Commission seconded national experts (SNEs). This chapter demonstrates that the socializing power of the Commission is conditional and only partly sustained when SNEs exit the Commission. Any long‐lasting effect of socialization within European Union's executive machinery of government is largely absent. This chapter demonstrates that overall system loyalties towards the European Union as a whole seem to be rather sticky but that the socializing power of the Commission is conditional and only partially sustained when SNEs exit the Commission. The ‘temporal identity’ of SNEs as ‘EU civil servants’ is dependent on their primary organizational embedment within the Commission. This chapter thus demonstrates that the Commission's secondment system does not create enduring supranational loyalties towards an emergent European Executive Order.
