GEPS No 03/17: The Europeanisation of the German System of Government

In this third policy paper in the German European Policy Series (GEPS) the author Roland Sturm, Chairholder of Political Science at the Friedrich-Alexander-University Erlangen-Nuremburg, shows that throughout the European integration process Germany has been integrated into the insti­tu­tional dynamism of the European Union. Up to date, this fact has immediate impact on every facet of German policy. Sturm argues that the German political system has become imbued with European politics and the European Union has become a constant presence in the German system of government.
