    Belgium's Adaptation to the EU : Does Federalism Constrain Europeanisation?Peter Bursens - 2002 - Res Publica 44 (4):575-597.
    This article starts from the observation that the Belgian level of adaptation to the requirements posed by its membership of the European Union is surprisingly low. Following an institutionalist line of thinking, it is argued that the impact of the European Union is seriously constrained by the characteristics of the Belgian federal system. This results into defining both cultural and structural indicators for the degree of Europeanisation: European opinions and awareness of political elites and the general public and the Belgian (...)

    De Europese lobby's en de Europese instellingen.Peter Bursens - 1996 - Res Publica 38 (1):113-134.
    The amount of European level organized interest groups has dramatically increased since the Single European Act came into force in 1987. In 1995 approximately 3000 lobby-groups, employing 10.000 lobbyists, are based in Brussels. This has resulted in a complex arrangement of European interest intermediation and caused important constraints on decision making procedures and institutional actors. The first part of this article offers a discription and evaluation of this proliferation and diversification of European interest groups. It alsosuggests a classification of all (...)

    De impact van zachte en harde politieke instituties in Europese besluitvorming : de totstandkoming van de 'Verpakkingsrichtlijn'.Peter Bursens - 1999 - Res Publica 41 (4):529-548.
    This article argues that both hard and soft institutions shape the strategies and - to a lesser extent - the preferences of political actors in the European Union. First of all, it discusses the institutional perspective in political science and presents an institutional model of decision-making. Secondly the institutional argument is illustrated by a detailed account of the decision-makingprocess with respect to the Packaging Directive. An analysis of the actor configuration, the interactions between the involved actors and an overview of (...)

    „Het Belgisch middenveld en de Europese beleidsvorming: institutionele factoren binnen een meerlagig systeem‟.Peter Bursens - 1998 - Res Publica 40 (2):231-246.
    This article examines the organisation and strategies of Belgian interest groups and their European peak-organisations with respect to the EU policy-making arena. It conceptualises the European Union as a of multi-level governance political system that consists ofmultiple interlocking government levels, governed by means of non-hierarchical actor configurations with a blurred boundary between the public and the private sphere. It further argues that the European policy-making can best be studied from a new-institutionalist perspective which emphasises that the preferences andthe behaviour of (...)

    Implementatie van Europese wetgeving in nationale systemen. De Belgische casus bekeken door een multi-level governance bril'.Peter Bursens & Sarah Helsen - 2001 - Res Publica 43 (1):59-79.
    This article explores the use of the Multilevel Governance concept to understand why EU Member-States, such as Belgium, sometimes fail to transpose EU directives correctly or in time. Firstly, it discusses the nature and the value of the MLG concept. It is argued that a theoretical incorporation of the MLG concept in the Neo-Institutional paradigm is necessary to gain explanatory power. Secondly, an overview is presented of the Belgian implementation record. In the last part, the combined use of the MLG (...)
