Example text

Notwithstanding the central role of member states and the Council in EU foreign and interior policies, the analysis in this book shows that policy-making processes in both areas depend on the interplay at the central EU level between the Council on the one hand, and supranational executive actors such as the Commission and the Council Secretariat on the other. Neither side of this ‘triple EU executive’ is, hence, ultimately able to dominate policy-making alone. These institutional features of cross-pillar politics lead to manifold power struggles and co-ordination problems in innerexecutive relations which negatively affect the overall efficiency of EU foreign and interior policies.

The usefulness of such a distinction between the Council Secretariat and the other aforementioned actors within the Council structure has been acknowledged by other scholars who have analysed the evolution of the role of the Secretariat, in particular with regard to EU foreign policies (M. E. Smith 2003; Christiansen 2002; Hayward-Renshaw and Wallace 1997). This should, however, not lead to the conclusion that the distinction between the Council Secretariat and other Council institutions is ‘clear-cut’ (Christiansen 2002: 35).

Christiansen 2002: 47–8) However, this form of intense structural coupling between the Council Secretariat and other Council actors must not only be seen as a limitation to the influence of the Secretariat. In fact, its close institutional relationship with member states in parallel with its overall political responsibility to the EU as such (and not to Presidencies or member states) actually provides the Council Secretariat with a strong institutional backing vis-à-vis both member states and other supranational actors, in particular the Commission.
