EGPA and the Study of EU Public Administration
Administration has always been a focal point of European Union (EU) research. Yet, the study of multilevel and EU administrations as research subject in its own right is more recent. The Permanent Study Group has assembled some of the key contributors to the most prominent debates, namely the EU’s core administrations, the interplay between international or supranational and lower level administrative units, questions of administrative autonomy in public and semi-autonomous agencies, systemic changes due to multilevel interactions and questions of compliance, as well as normative questions of accountability and control more broadly. In sum, multilevel administration, crucially studies in the EU context, has developed an elaborate research agenda that generates generalisable findings for multilevel administrations and their implications for contemporary governance.
