Example text

How are we to understand the basic model of Europeanization? A third question has to do with the challenges posed by Europeanization research. In the remainder of this chapter I attempt to show how Europeanization is a logical outgrowth of the evolution of integration theory (the central claim), that is, how the seeds of this idea were planted inside integration theory itself. In demonstrating this endogenous ideational change, it is necessary to provide a schematic outline of one Europeanization model to show the “state of the art” regarding our knowledge of Europeanization.

But there are other types of impact. To begin with, the decline of the Community method (Majone 2005: ch. 3) shows that some areas of EU policy are moving away from vertical policy making in the sense of laws created in Brussels and then “imposed” onto member states via transposition and implementation. There are also horizontal processes based on cooperation among the member states’ governments in the 38 Theory and Methods context of the EU but outside the Community method, as shown by the Common Foreign and Security Policy and the components of Justice and Home Affairs that so far have not been taken into the Community framework.

That contribution is meant to remind readers of the tradition in which this new research agenda is embedded, and also to picture the three-step approach that has become one (if not the) classic model of Europeanization so far, and thus very much represents the state of the art against which this handbook is set. We have highlighted some main issues for an assessment in this introduction in order to provide the reader with some basic terminology of Europeanization research. Three further chapters in Part II very much set out the theoretical and methodological lines much more specifically along which readers can evaluate the empirical chapters and judge what Europeanization research is about, what its potentials are, and what hurdles are yet to be taken to further progress this developing research agenda.
