Some view the European Commission, the executive branch of the European Union, as one of the most innovative administrative bodies in the world, while others see it as a bureaucratic giant. This book does away with these superficial and simplified ideas. It shows how the Commission acts with other players as part of a balanced system of decision-making. Straightforward and accessible, it de-mystifies procedures, practices, and policies which, up until now, have been perceived by many as baffling and oblique.
