On 6 September 2017 two TARN Partners, Morten Egeberg and Jarle Trondal, will chair a panel entitled: ‘The Politics of EU Multilevel Administration’ at the 2017 ECPR General Conference in Oslo.

The panel is part of the section ‘The Politics of Bureaucracy’. Claudio Radaelli (University of Exeter) is the panel discussant.

Focusing on the executive branch, the EU’s administration encompasses the Commission services, the EEAS, EU agencies and agency networks and other relationships to national administrations. The Panel invites Papers on the politics of structuring and staffing this administration, and on how structure and staff composition impact on (multi-level) governance processes, such as political steering and accountability, policy development, the relative importance of supranational and national concerns, the degree of harmonization of implementation practices across member states, and the possible spreading of ‘good governance’ across Europe.
