Example text

The new European Union with its project for a single currency, was not less committed to the objective of 'economic and social cohesion' than the European Community with the completion of the single market for the year 1992. Moreover, even harsh critics of the failures in the period 1989-1993 period admitted that many shortcomings were due to 'teething troubles' of the young policy and reflected the lack of experience of the policy-makers involved not only at the supranational level but also at national and regional levels (Kearney 1997: 312).

As the European involvement in regional policy-making was still weak the national information-providing duties were not taken particularly seriously and the Commission had to content itself with the data obtained from the national authorities. When the Commission itself did not participate in the planning and implementation of programmes, there was not much complaint about this, but the more the Commission became involved in policymaking, the less acceptable this complete informational dependence on national willingness to co-operate became.

Compliance with, and the quality of, the information or participation requirements in European regional policy prior to the IMPs was certainly insufficient from the Commission's perspective. Tellingly-from a management capacity perspective-at the point where the Commission for the first time receives substantial policy-making powers, such procedural devices are introduced which seem to address the Commission's informational dependency at the European level. It is precisely the transparency-increasing effect of the participational expansion and the expertise-accumulating potential of policy evaluation which appeared to help resolve the Commission's informational deficiencies in joint policy-making.
