Abstract

Responding to the call for cooperation between the policy network and governance literature, we apply social network analysis (SNA) to a study of European
multi-level policymaking using empirical data gathered as part of the INTEREURO project. We focus on the studied network’s characteristics and, building on hypotheses developed in the policy network and governance literature, judge the potential capacity to coordinate EU networks. Based on our analysis, we redefine the decisional center of EU networks and argue that coordination
capacity varies among different policy fields.
