Resource description

This research project examines the extent to which Impact Assessments provide decision makers with evidence-based policy options (i.e. increased rationality in the policymaking process), or whether they are actually a tool for ensuring policy officials follow the political objectives set by their masters (i.e. a solution to the principle-agent problem), or a process for improved coordination of key policy actors both inside and outside the European Commission.
