    Abstract

    Having chosen to compare a very integrated policy-sector, which is agriculture, with a policy field based on national competences (nuclear energy), the research attempts to determine if there is more convergence between the national policy styles in the sectors in a very integrated policy field than in a policy area where policy-making is mainly based on intergovernmental bargaining. I argue that looking systemically at the sector specific characteristics of European policy-making, we observe sectorally divergent styles of public-private interaction, which are mediated by the interaction style forged at the national level. Contrary to Gerda Falkner's study we do thus not observe "rather more convergence than before between the geographic layers of the European Union and between the Member States."
