    Abstract

    Political scientists have normally considered the European Community (EC) from the standpoint either of international relations or comparative politics/public policy. Although the division between the two sub-disciplines is strongly rooted, it is increasingly viewed as a barrier to greater understanding of the neo-state structure of the EC. Using a case study of the implementation of EC coastal bathing water policy in Britain over the last twenty years, this article argues that closer investigation of the long term outcome of individual policies at the national and sub-national level provides a sounder basis upon which to adjudicate between the two main paradigms of integration, namely intergovernmentalism and neofunctionalism, than studies of short-term policy outputs emanating from the Council of Ministers.
