Policymaking involves developing plans that are put in
place through legislation, creating a regulatory system
Policymaking in the EU takes place across four EU
institutions:
• European Commission;
• European Parliament;
• Council; and
• European Court of Justice
EU Institutions and Policy Making
Member States have different opportunities to feed into the
policymaking process through
• their representation in the European Parliament (elected
members) and
• the Council (representatives of national governments)
The role of the European Commission is to identify where
policy development may be needed, or where existing
legislation requires review
Many factors drive policy development including social need
and technological progress
Engaging with the European Union
If you want to impact on policy engaging with the EU can be very
effective.
• The European Commission is a civil service agency for the EU
• They work with academics and draw on academic research
• They presenting findings to policymakers and decision-takers
• There are well-established links between the EU and research
institutions.
Engaging with the European Union
The EU deals with policy issues that affect all 28 member states, not
individual countries
Connect with the EU if your research has high-level implications
EU policy also relates to specific regions
Engaging with EU officials can be useful if research has regional impact
