Study of developments in standard-setting processes in the European Union

The aim of the programme is to study, in terms of its origin, diversity and meaning, the decision-making and standard-setting processes within the European Union.

Interdisciplinary working meetings attended by several IRDEIC teams have led to identification of the need to start by establishing the current status (which was already planned as the first phase for the programme) by establishing - as clearly as possible - the various decision-making methods and issues involved.
To this end, coordination (Marc Blanquet) and publication of a shared work consolidating the contributions of certain specialists, each one of which have established reputations in terms of the topics addressed, have been decided on.

Plan of work:
I. Institutional and general approach

T. Georgeopoulos: Separation of powers and decision-making in the European Union
C. Blumann: The Legislative function in the “adjusted” Union
J.-P. Jacquet: Changes to the qualified majority in the Council
Didier Blanc: The Law-Making European Parliament
Stéphane de la Rosa: The open method of coordination, palliative or substitute?
II. Functional and special approaches
M. Gautier: Decision-making in the third pillar
F. Terpan: decision-making in the second pillar
J. Jorda: executive decision-making in the European Union
Hélène Gaudin: Treaty revision procedure
Joël Molinier: Budget decision-making
Cécile Rapoport: The participation of Third States in decision-making in the European Union
Second phase planned:
The project aims at studying, as a second step, the aspect of “legislating better”, and this second phase of Norma will therefore be associated with a symposium organised by the CDC on the topic: “What about simplification of the law?” This symposium will constitute the 7th Annual IFR Day Event on “Changes in Legal Standards” by the Toulouse 1 University of Social Sciences on 26 and 27 November 2009.
