The existence of sectional, national, political, organizational, procedural and cultural factors means that the emergence of a European policy is plagued by what at times seem to be insuperable obstacles. However, Michelle Cini argues that fragmentation is a positive attribute rather than a functionary flaw in the Union, and in fact serves to smooth out the process of European-level decision-making. This book considers how the fragmented nature of EU policy has been accommodated using strategies of co-operation, co-ordination and integration.
