Summary

European agencies have been created at a rapid pace in recent years in a multitude of highly pertinent and sensitive fields ranging from pharmaceuticals and aviation safety to chemicals or financial supervision. These bodies, meant to operate at arm's length from political control, have real power and their opinions and decisions can have a direct impact on individuals, regulators and member states. Given the powers wielded by the agencies, who is responsible forholding these non-majoritarian actors to account? Is the growing concern surrounding agency accountability 'much ado about nothing'or are we faced with the threat of a powerful and unaccountable bureaucracy? This is precisely the question that this book seeks to answer. The bookexamines how the accountability system of European agencies operates both formally as well as in practice, through an investigation of both the legal provisions in place as well as their de facto implementation.
