Rules of Federalism by R. Daniel Kelemen

Book Description

This book examines patterns of environmental regulation in the European Union and four federal polities - the United States, Germany, Australia, and Canada. Daniel Kelemen develops a theory of regulatory federalism based on his comparative study, arguing that the greater the fragmentation of power at the federal level, the less discretion is allotted to component states. Kelemen's analysis offers a novel perspective on the EU and demonstrates that the EU already acts as a federal polity in the regulatory arena. In The Rules of Federalism, Kelemen shows that both the structure of the EU's institutions and the control these institutions exert over member states closely resemble the American federal system, with its separation of powers, large number of veto points, and highly detailed, judicially enforceable legislation. In the EU, as in the United States, a high degree of fragmentation in the central government yields a low degree of discretion for member states when it comes to implementing regulatory statutes.

Books By Author R. Daniel Kelemen

Lessons from Europe? by R. Daniel Kelemen Lessons from Europe?, Paperback (April 2014)

Using a series of engaging case studies written by policy area experts, this volume asks whether European policies might prove effective in the U.S. context, as well as what pitfalls might be avoided.

Power of the European Court of Justice by R. Daniel Kelemen Power of the European Court of Justice, Hardback (October 2012)

This text investigates how the European Court of Justice (ECJ) has continued to support deeper integration and whether the EU is experiencing an increase in countervailing forces that may diminish the Court's ability or willingness to act as a motor of integration.

Eurolegalism by R. Daniel Kelemen Eurolegalism, Hardback (April 2011)

Despite western Europe's traditional disdain for the United States' "adversarial legalism," the European Union is shifting toward a similar approach to the law, according to Daniel Kelemen. Coining the term "eurolegalism" to describe the hybrid, he shows how the political and organizational realities of the EU make this shift inevitable.
