Book Description

Policies in the EU are largely made by national civil servants who prepare and implement decisions in Brussels as well as at home. Despite their important role, these national civil servants form a relatively hidden world that has received little attention from both the media and academics. This volume considers a wide variety of sources and research methods to answer such questions as: how many civil servants are actually involved in EU-related activities? What do these civil servants do when they engage with the EU? And how do they negotiate their dual roles? The New Eurocrats offers unique and invaluable insights into these civil servants and their working practices-and uncovers some secrets in the world of EU governance along the way.

De Europese Unie staat al geruime tijd ter discussie in de Nederlandse politiek en bij het Nederlandse publiek. Daarbij wordt vaak het spookbeeld opgeroepen van een ongrijpbare bureaucratie die voor Nederland bepaalt wat er moet gebeuren. Maar hoe komen deze Europese besluiten eigenlijk tot stand? En welke invloed heeft de EU daarmee op het Nederlandse bestuur? In The New Eurocrats worden deze vragen vanuit een belangrijk perspectief benaderd dat tot nu toe grotendeels is genegeerd: de rol en activiteiten van Nederlandse ambtenaren binnen de EU. Deze nationale ambtenaren spelen een grote rol bij de totstandkoming en uitvoering van Europees beleid. In dit boek wordt op basis van een schat aan bronnen de 'verborgen wereld' van Nederlandse ambtenaren in de EU belicht. Zo wordt een beter zicht geboden op hoe de EU haar besluiten neemt, hoe Nederlandse ambtenaren daar in hun dagelijkse werk op inspelen en hoe dit doorwerkt in de manier waarop de Nederlandse overheid is georganiseerd.
