Europeanization and the Domestic Influence on the European Union
If we talk about Europeanization and put an emphasis on domestic issues and influence in scope of Europeanization, it is possible to use Börzel’s distinction between policies, politics and polity. Exactly by these three dimensions the domestic impact of Europeanization can be analysed and processes of domestic change can be traced. There has been made a statement, that Europeanization affects policies, politics and polity differently.1
As Börzel says, there are three possible degrees of domestic change that can be either strong or weak because of Europeanization pressures. First is absorption- memberstates are incorporating European policies and ideas into their programs and domestic structures, without substantially modifying existing processes, policies and institutions. The degree of domestic change here then is quite low. Second is accommodation- the memberstates accommodate European pressures by adapting existing processes, policies and institutions without changing their essential features and the underlying collective understandings attached to them. One way of doing this is kind of “patching up” new policies and institutions onto already existing ones without transforming them.
