How policy-shaping might (not) affect policy-taking: _x000d_National parliaments in the decision-making and the implementation of European Union policies

Abstract:

Several approaches in the literature on compliance with international law trace non-compliance back to the decision-making stage. While enforcement approaches argue that the power of assertiveness during the decision-making stage positively affects compliance, legitimacy approaches put forward the fairness of the decision-making procedure. Yet, little attempts were made to provide an empirical underpinning for the theoretical claims that features of the decision-making process have a sustainable effect on implementation. This paper seeks to fill this gap by exploring to which extent policy-shaping might affect policy-taking of European Union (EU) policies by drawing on the case of national parliaments. It analyses the involvement of French Assemblée Nationale and the German Bundestag throughout the legislative procedure of two EU environmental directives and shows that neither power of assertiveness nor procedural legitimacy explains the subsequent transposition of these directives by the two legislatures. Yet, the study highlights that policy-shaping might affect policy-taking under the condition that it provides information on the rule and thereby enhances the capacity of implementing actors.
