European Commissioners
Technocrats, Diplomats or Politicians ?

Since the 1998-1999 crisis and the resignation of the Santer commission, the European commissioners have regularly been taken to task by political critics and journalistic. Yet this group remains a "black box" for political science. Based on many conversations with the commissioners and members of their cabinets, this book fills a gap by analysing the way in which these commissioners are nominated, their role in the implementation of community policies and their political representation in Europe. It shows that the commissioners are directly involved in the invention of an original European political order which is similar to the political order which presided over the formation of contemporary democracies.
