Por qué los distintos europeos quieren cooperar de distintas maneras? ( )
1 edition published in 1998 in Spanish and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Las negociaciones en la Conferencia Intergubernamental conducente al Tratado de Amsterdam han vuelto a confirmar la dificultad para los Estados miembros de llegar a un acuerdo sobre cómo debe actuar la Unión Europea. La Comunidad Europea y la Cooperación Nórdica representan procesos complejos de profunda interdependencia entre naciones. Sin embargo los dos procesos han sido diametralmente opuestos en su naturaleza y funcionamiento, y han tenido resultados prácticos muy diferentes. El objetivo de este artículo es contribuir a un mayor entendimiento de las bases de la percepción nórdica sobre cooperación regional e integración y llamar la atención sobre la importancia de sostener una interpretación flexible y creativa de los procesos de integración regional y de las instituciones.--SCAD summary

Alternative methods and EU policy-making : what does "co-regulation" really mean? by Edward Best( )
1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The Better Regulation agenda includes consideration of alternatives to regulation where EU legislation is neither specifically required nor uniquely suitable. These take different forms. A basic distinction can be made between two approaches involving measures which are not legally bindig. Policy coordination is a non-negotiable alternative to legislation laid down in the treaty. Self-regulation and "co-regulation" in principle provide for a choice in particular cases, and often a dynamic interplay between the threat of legislation and the credibility of private commitments. ... ."--Editor
Alternative regulations or complementary methods? : Evolving options in European governance ( )
1 edition published in 2003 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Long gone are the days when the only choice for pursuing a Community objective was law, and law was adopted according to one main procedure. In many areas EU policy is formulated and implemented through a mixture of methods both legal and non-legal, European and national, public and private. After a flashback to recall some the main reasons why all these new methods have emerged, this article outlines the main features of two areas in which "self-regulation" and "co-regulation" are significant: environmental agreements and the social dialogue. It then gives an overview of the very different ways in which the "open method of coordination" is in fact being pursued. The final section then addresses some of the main issues which have been raised regarding the effectiveness and legitimacy of these new methods, and looks to the future."--Editor

Crossing the bridge of size : reaching a deal at Nice ( )
1 edition published in 2000 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This paper first presents the background to the Intergovernmental Conference (IGC) 2000 and the scope of the agenda. It then outlines the principal options and arguments touching each of the main points under consideration (size and composition of the Commission, weighting of votes, qualified-majority voting, closer co-operation between some countries), and looks at the prospects as of September 2000 for the results of the IGC. Finally, it highlights some broader concerns about how the institutional debate has developed, concentrating on the question of size, and considers what might be the most appropriate outcome of the IGC in the light of the need to ensure coherence and solidarity in an ever larger Union among the peoples of Europe.--SCAD summary
