schema:reviewBody""Two leading authors challenge the assumption that France has a well coordinated government. The constitutional, political, and policy frameworks of coordination are critically assessed in relation to the central actors and spending ministries, as well as the formal and informal mechanisms of coordination. Four case studies are examined: the European Union, the budget, privatisation, and immigration policy processes. The book concludes with forthright findings on a fragmented executive struggling to steer a disparate and partially paralysed institutional structure."."
