Chapter 7 argues that diagnosis of an emergent European Executive Order should incorporate the diverse dynamics of EU‐level agencies. Recent years have witnessed comprehensive reform efforts in the Commission aimed partly at increasing institutional effectiveness and efficiency. One constituent ingredient thereof has been the creation of EU‐level agencies with regulatory and non‐regulatory discretionary competences beneath the Community institutions. This chapter conceptualizes theoretically and explores empirically three complementary images of agency governance in the European Union. Based on a rich body of survey and interview data among regulatory and non‐regulatory EU‐level agencies, this chapter demonstrates that EU‐level agencies are compound institutions that combine the roles as autonomous administrative spaces, multilevel epistemic networks, and Community institutions.
