Health Policy inside a Brussels Bubble?

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

Health policy is at the center of the contemporary welfare state in Western Europe. There is, however, no evidence that voters, member states or health sector groups such as NGOs want an EU health policies. In this paper, I discuss how the EU is able to operate in this field and what its recent achievements tell us about the dynamics of integration and integration theory.

The development of EU health policy showcases two dynamics of integration: it demonstrates the triumph of the European Court of Justice, with the EU institutions leading the way in creating the competency despite member state resistance. On the other hand, it is also a case of softer forms of integration, with the Commission creating a variety of European networks and using grants to build a public health constituency. The end result is that the EU has not been very successful in creating an EU health policy, but it has been more successful at creating an EU health politics that elevates the interests of European networks of medical professionals and health officials, and that promotes a European-wide debate on health challenges and dilemmas.
