Abstract and Keywords

This article outlines recent scholarship on the influences of Europeanization on British politics to evaluate what has been learned to date. The discussion provides a brief survey of research straddling policy, political actors, and institutions. The article also argues that, though Britain generally does indeed represent a distinctive case, the evidence of recent literature signals that Europeanization has had a far more complex and varied character than popular images might suggest, and that there has been change over time. Europeanization is the study of the interrelationship between the domestic and the European Union (EU) system. The agenda for Europeanization research in the UK is broad and, whilst scholarship to date has dwelt on particular cases, it has done so to varying degrees of empirical depth. There remain major gaps and limitations.

Keywords: Europeanization, European Union, British politics, Britain, policy, political actors, institutions
