European Governance and System Integration

By emphasizing the interdependence between management and integration, the EU governance can propose a new path. EU governance is not only the characteristics of the new EU system of government decisions, while national and European level on the formation of the system have a significant impact. EU governance and institutional building process of each member system may affect the integration and consistency. In a way, Europe "good governance" could threaten the ability of the existing state system of governance and democratic quality. Can be assessed in a systematic way to EU governance when, why, consistent stumbling block is a member, or a springboard for cross-national integration. EU governance across national borders to open up political space, but at the national level, the EU governance has not caused any apparent disintegration of the results. The paper presents a new approach to EU governance by stressing the interdependence of governance and integration. It suggests that EU governance is not just shaped by the emerging properties of the EU polity but has a strong impact both on system formation at national arid European level. It is a process of mutual structuration which is likely to affect the integration and coherence of member state systems up to a point where European 'good governance' may threaten the governability and democratic quality of established national systems. The paper goes on to assess in a systematic way why and when EU governance may qualify as stumbling stones for member state coherence or stepping stones for transnational integration. EU governance has the effect of opening a trans-national polity space which, however, has not produced any visible dis-integrative effects at the national level
