Sample text

Regarding the distribution of landing rights for air transport, the national carriers, united in the Association of European Airlines (AEA), have orchestrated since the early 1990s informal influences on their national ministries at home. European NGOs like Amnesty International frequently launch calls to national capitals for friendlier domestic policies. Here we leave the vectors that stream down from the European to the national level and cause a national adaptation to the European level. The next four represent, conversely, national influences at the European level.

As will be shown later, there are various situations in which adaptive behaviour is more rational than an effort to influence a growing threat or opportunity. This rationality can only be based, again, on a consciously prepared study at home, to be called the preparatory homework. In daily life, however, adaptive behaviour is frequently not the consequence of conscious homework but of precisely the opposite, namely the neglect of it. Then, due to its nonchalance, the organisation can only try to adapt to, in our case, the europeanization of its environment.

The first four cover the downstream from the European level to the domestic one that results in domestic (public or private) adaptations to European causes, and the other four the upstream from the domestic level that influences the European one. Viewed from the EU, the first four stream down from its output side and the second four stream up to its input side. (1) From the European public sector to the national public sector. This is, for example, the popular idea of ‘Brussels governs’. It has given rise to an enormous body of literature on domestic government adaptation to EU laws, which as binding regulations and decrees overrule domestic laws directly, and as directives still needing national implementation indirectly.
