This chapter discusses the range of theories and approaches to analyzing and evaluating the EU’s approach to policy making and shaping. It starts this through a consideration of external influences on the EU including its membership of the WTO and OECD. It continues with a discussion on the effects of these external influences and how they operate in shaping EU policies and then translating these into the ways in which they influence the policies of the member states. This analysis continues with a discussion on the integrationist and intergovernmentalist schools of argument and separates these from Europeanisation assessments that can be both formal and informal in their approaches. The chapter also discusses Europeanisation as an intended and unintended consequence. The chapter concludes with a discussion on the type of governance machine that the EU embodies.
