What does a single European market imply for the European business environment and the institutions of the European Union? What is the role of lobbying in the EU decision-making process and how can the process of European integration achieve greater democratic legitimacy? How can the rules that govern the EU marketplace be implemented more consistently? Who gains and who loses from European integration? My work seeks to explore these issues through institutional and policy studies, and thus to throw light on the nature of European Union decision-making at supranational, national and sub-national levels.
