On 4 and 5 December, TARN conference entitled “‘EU Agencies as ‘Inbetweeners’? The Relationship between EU Agencies and Member States” will take place in Maastricht. This two-day conference will bring together academics and legal experts to discuss the relation between EU agencies and Member States and how this relation is shaped, which ultimately is of interest to the conceptual understanding of the EU’s shared or integrated administration. Particular attention will be paid to the ‘borrowing’ of EU agencies by Member States to implement EU law, which seems not to be problematic as such, but is adding to the complexity of their accountability which is a general problem inherent to the hybrid character of EU agencies.

The final programme for the conference will be announced soon.
