The Illusion of Accountability in the European Union

(Häftad)

Beskrivning:

This book examines accountability in the EU from different perspectives and considers whether EU citizens have real opportunities for holding decision-makers accountable. This book critically analyses five arguments which claim there are sufficient means for holding decision-makers to account in the Union. The authors examine:The argument that we should rethink the meaning of accountability in the EU context The claim that there is no accountability deficit in the EU because member states have the power to retrieve all delegated competenciesThe assertion that EU citizens have effective mechanisms for holding those responsible for legislative decision-making to accountThe contention that the arrangements that obtain at present for holding the executive power in the EU to account are acceptableThe belief that the involvement of organised civil society can work as an alternative to traditional forms of accountabilityThe main conclusion is that the current institutional set-up and practice of decision-making in the EU is one that merely creates an illusion of accountability. Using a strict framework focusing on the difference between formal mechanisms and actual opportunities for accountability, this highly coherent volume will be of interest to students and scholars of European politics, especially those interested in the democratic foundations of the European political system.
