Overview

The EU Comitology System in Theory and Practice: Keeping an Eye on the Commission? by Jens Blom-Hansen

EU law consists of several thousand acts of which the overwhelming majority are made by the Commission. The Commission is controlled by comitology, a system of committees of member state representatives that are consulted when new acts are proposed. This book looks at why the system was created, how it functions and how it has evolved.
