    Abstract

    The impact of European policy-making on the domestic structures of the member states has gained increasing attention in the field of European studies. Despite the lively and ongoing debate on whether Europe ultimately strengthens, weakens, or transforms 'the state,' there seems to be a consensus in the literature that Europeanisation results in some domestic changes. This paper argues that Europe might not matter so much after all. The case study on the implementation of EU environmental policy in Spain indicates that Europeanisation only leads to changes in the domestic structures of a member state if the EU policies are taken up by domestic actors who pressure the domestic administration to effectively implement the EU policies.
