European Policy-Making and Coordination in Executive and Legislature 1976–2007
This chapter outlines the institutional framework in the UK core executive and legislature on European policy coordination. It focuses on the institutional organisation in the analysed time period 1976–2007. Together with the attitudes to Europe integration held by the four prime ministers, their parliamentary parties, the media and the public, which are traced in Chap. 5, these are necessary preliminaries for the subsequent case study analysis. The institutional arrangements in European policy-making and the attitudes to European integration taken by actors in and outside the core executive are part of the leadership environment in which a premier’s political leadership unfolds.
