Reviews

“The author empirically investigates three major aspects of the reforms. … Combining interview data with a thorough analysis of official documents, the book nicely complements previous research on the Kinnock reforms … with a comprehensive focus on changes in formal structures and management procedure. … are relevant not only for Commission experts and public management scholars, but also for researchers and practitioners interested in organizational change and the implementation of administrative policies. … a timely and relevant read.” (Jörn Ege, Journal of Common Market Studies, Vol. 53 (5), 2015)
