The Joint-Decision Trap Revisited

Author

Listed:
  • FRITZ W. SCHARPF

Abstract

The original analysis appears as a basically valid - if simplified - account of the institutional conditions of "political" policy choices in the EU and their consequences. It needs to be complemented, however, by a similar account of "non-political" policy-making in the supranational-hierarchical mode of governance by the ECB or ECJ.
