Comparative Governance, Policy Networks and European Integration
Summary "This title was first published in 2002: Developing European Regions? presents a novel approach to the analysis of European regional policy and uses network analysis as an innovative instrument to understand the integration process within individual countries. The book develops a convincing argument about the different manifestation of integration in Ireland, Britain and Germany resulting from the implementation of European Union (EU) structural policy in specific domestic contexts. Employing a distinctive methodology designed to overcome some of the problems associated with cross-national comparison and studies of European integration, the case studies chosen enable a substantive comparison of the impact of EU involvement in policy and associated developments in governance upon federal and unitary systems of governance. Suitable for audience of area specialists, regional politics, sub-national governance, comparative politics and public administration, public policy analysis and network theory, as well as European studies and European integration theory, the book is an extremely useful contribution to the literature."--Provided by publisher
