Abstract [en]

Numerous studies have looked into why and how EU-supported policies are adopted in non–EU member states. However, the practical implementation of such policies has only received modest scholarly attention. This article shows that EU policies, once adopted, continue to be negotiated and resisted during their implementation phase. Based on interviews with experts involved in twelve Twinning projects in Georgia, this article aims to uncover the mechanisms behind less successful compliance with the EU acquis: insufficient administrative capacity and the politicized nature of public administration are likely to significantly affect the degree to which EU law is implemented.

Abstract [en]

Numerous studies, using the Europeanization theoretical framework, have looked into why and how EU-supported norms and policies are adopted in non EU-Member States, focusing either on the mechanisms through which they are diffused or on the local actors' responses to such demands. However, the practical implementation of such norms and policies in third countries has only received modest attention in academic and policy-related studies. Indeed, the “law in the books” is not necessarily the “law in action”. Going beyond the top-down approach that have extensively characterized Europeanization studies, this dissertation will operate a return to the “mundane face” of Europeanization and looks into how expert interactions matter for EU law implementation. It shows that those experts are highly enthusiast and willing to implement EU demands and adapted them to fit in their domestic context. They act as policy champions and show high degrees of policy saliency when fulfilling their tasks. Nevertheless, those champions operate in a difficult administrative and political environment that complicates EU law compliance, with low administrative capacity, high degree of staff turn-over, shortages of knowledgeable staff and political actors that might hinder EU law implementation if it is too costly or in contradiction with domestic vested interests.

Abstract [en]

How has the European Commission designed its new enlargement methodology in times of enlargement fatigue? Several studies have pointed out the French opposition to launching accession negotiation with North Macedonia and Albania in 2019 as a significant factor explaining the content of the new methodology. Traditionally, enlargement policy has been seen through the lenses of rational choice institutionalism: from this perspective, the new methodology would be resulting from such an external shock. This paper argues instead, using the discursive institutionalism framework and the concept of institutional bricolage, that the new methodology is the product of four different discourses on enlargement layered on top of each other.

Abstract [fr]

Une réaction au « non » français ? Ou un exemple de bricolage institutionnel ?

Comment la Commission européenne a-t-elle conçu sa nouvelle méthodologie d'élargissement malgré une certaine lassitude face à ce processus ? Plusieurs études ont montré que l'opposition française au lancement des négociations d'adhésion avec la Macédoine du Nord et l'Albanie en 2019 expliquait le contenu de la nouvelle méthodologie. Traditionnellement, la politique d'élargissement a été vue à travers le prisme de l´institutionnalisme rationnel : de ce point de vue, la nouvelle méthodologie serait le résultat d’un tel choc externe. Cet article soutient au contraire, en utilisant le cadre de l'institutionnalisme discursif et le concept de bricolage institutionnel, que la nouvelle méthodologie est le produit de quatre discours différents sur l'élargissement superposés les uns sur les autres.

Abstract [sv]

Utifrån egna erfarenheter som handledare i två olika kandidatprogram vid Malmö universitet samt policy-dokument tillhörande dessa program, är syftet med denna artikel att diskutera handledning som en mång-facetterad arbetsallians mellan handledare och handledda. I artikeln utforskas fem olikateman som är relevanta för handledning på grundnivå respektive avancerad nivå: Olika handledarroller, emotionella band mellan handledaren och den handledda, maktförhållanden i handledningsrelationer, gruppseminarier samt feedback. Artikeln visar att handledning innefattar en mängd olika roller och stilar som handledaren kan inneha –roller och stilar som behöver anpassas till varje student och över tid. Av denna anledning behöver handledaren och den handledda kontinuerligt reflektera över olika aspekter av sin arbetsallians för att denna ska nå sin fulla potential.

Abstract [en]

Despite significant institutional changes and refinements since its creation in 2004, the ENP(European Neighborhood Policy) remains a major tool available to the EU for providing incentivesfor reform and stability in non-member states through the diffusion of its norms and rules.Earlier studies, drawing on the Europeanization conceptual framework, have been mostly concernedabout how and by which mechanisms compliance with EU rules takes place, rather thanfocusing on whether and to what extent it occurs. By contrast, this article assesses the actorness ofthe EU in three countries of the South Caucasus (Georgia, Armenia and Azerbaijan), viewingactorness as composed of three dimensions – capability, opportunity, and presence – enabling andconstraining the aspirations of the EU to be an international actor in the South Caucasus.

Abstract [en]

The 2011 and 2015 reviews of the European Neighborhood Policy (ENP) has put a stronger focus on the target countries´ selective compliance as regards to EU norms. In existing literature on Europeanization, selective compliance has often been clarified by looking further into target countries´ domestic factors, such as the mismatch between domestic policies and EU norms, their geopolitical context or the nature of their political regimes, thus overshadowing the impact of EU´s complex institutional structure on rule transfer processes. Role theory has underlined role conflicts within the EU´s institutional structure but has, nonetheless, neglected to account for how the EU´s international role(s) has been contested between EU institutions, from within. This article argues that role theory needs to re-shift its focus on the political settings in which international organizations are embedded, by better integrating the bureaucratic politics´ theoretical framework. This article maintains that the case of intra-role conflicts between the EU´s Special Representative for the South Caucasus and the crisis in Georgia and other EU bureaucratic agencies, and their effects on Georgia´s selective compliance, is a promising research avenue for providing a better understanding on how rule transfer processes work.
