Chapter Summary

The administration of the European Union (EU) is a cross between a national and an international administration. Given this perspective, it is paramount to determine the exact location of the EU’s administration on a scale between a national and an international administration. The defining attributes of an administration in general and an international administration in particular is outlined in this chapter in order to determine the special character of the EU administration. The chapter then focuses on the peculiar position of the bureaucrat in an international administration and analyses one of the major problems for international administrations, their lack of autonomous influence on the decision-making process, and available means for increasing their influence. Finally, it takes a closer look at the special implications the international administration’s environment has for its functioning.

Keywords: bureaucrat; European Union's (EUs) administration
