William Wallace et. al. (eds.). Policy-Making in the European Union. (2005).

Key point: analyzes policy-making in the EU using a multi-level governance framework. Argues that the EU policy process is driven by multiple state and non-state actors in a variety of multi-site, non-hierarchical, informal, problem-solving and ever-changing relationships, which is ultimately very different from anything at the national level in Europe. Thus, the EU policy system is unique, characterized by informal politics.
