All politics is national, but policy is supra-national: a decisive discrepancy

Research output: Contribution to JournalArticle

Abstract

In this paper I will show that politics is national in terms of both issue salience and elite recruitment patterns, while policy-making is increasingly being shifted to the supra-national level where popular support and legitimacy are low and democratic control is inadequate. This supra-national level of decision-making is characterised above all by nationally elected politicians who face little opposition, scrutiny or democratic supervision.
