Theoretical Debates And Political Approaches Regarding Th European Union Governing
AbstractThe word ‘politics’ is typically associated with the business of governments and states, the sphere of public policy and questions of authority. The article discusses the perceptions of the European Union as a system of governance. In order to enable an enlarged European Union to function more effectively, the Lisbon Treaty is the latest attempt to reform its governing institutions and decision-making processes. The article also explores the multi-level governance which gives expression to the idea that there are many interacting authority structures at work in the global political economy. As a reaction to the EU’s economic integration, OMC is a relatively new and intergovernmental means of governance in the European Union, based on the voluntary cooperation of its member states. Last, but not least, flexible integration considered as an avant-garde of the European integration shall remain only as a potential method, as politicians claim, unless specific initiatives of transposition into practice appear in several fields. In the meantime it remains a controversial method and a major challenge among the European Union states.
