Publikation: Bog/antologi/afhandling/rapportBogForskningpeer review


This book offers the first comprehensive analysis since the Lisbon Treaty came into force of the EU Presidency on national administrations in the member states of Poland, Denmark and Cyprus before, during and after the so-called ‘Trio Presidency’. Placing the practical issues facing officials and policy-makers into a ‘governmentality’ framework, it analyses the impact on the daily activities of bureaucrats and ministers. The book utilises comprehensive and novel empirical materials, including around 100 interviews with key officials, documentary sources and academic literature. It uncovers the kind of negotiations, management and coordination triggered by the immense challenge of presiding over the EU - including being a part of a Trio. The book in hand will be of key interest to scholars, students of political science, European Union studies and public administration, as well as more broadly to Comparative Politics and International Relations. It will also be of interest to officials and practitioners in EU member states approaching the presidency.
