Abstract and Keywords

The study of European Union (EU) governance and policy making processes, as well as its impact upon member states and beyond, can be inspiring for the development of theoretical propositions on global policy and transnational administration, and vice versa. For a long time, the EU has been perceived as a unique governance structure because it is neither a federal state nor an intergovernmental international organization and thus new models and concepts have been developed in order to analyse it. The aim of this chapter is to outline some of the most influential conceptual frameworks (e.g. multi-level governance, EU networks analysis, and Europeanization) in EU studies and to show how they can be translated into useful analytical frameworks for the analysis of global policy and transnational administration. The literature on the role of the EU as a global actor is also reviewed since it directly connects the European and global levels of analysis.

Keywords: Europeanization, European Union studies, global policy, governance, networks, transnational administration
