The move towards a system of integrated administration in the EU poses
considerable legal challenges. This book explores ways in which
accountability, legality, legitimacy and efficiency can be ensured in the
multiple forms of co-operation of European and national administrations in
the delivery of EU and EC policies.
Examining the procedures and structures of European administrative
integration, this innovative book will be a stimulating read for academics,
researchers and both undergraduate and postgraduate students in European law.
