    As Paul Pierson’s recent work has illustrated, looking exclusively to the national interests and relative power of the member states cannot completely explain the European Union as it is today. Rather, Pierson credits certain ‘gaps’ between member state preferences and ‘conditions on the ground’ as important factors in determining the extent and character of European integration. This paper is centrally concerned with fleshing out the details of some of these ‘gaps’ as concerns policy implementation. Specifically, I will argue that an ever increasing role for organized interests in EU policy implementation within the member states has augmented the reach of the Commission as an enforcement institution, and therefore contributed to a more autonomous and politically relevant actor--member state preferences not withstanding.
