    This paper develops three basic arguments about the evolving role of cabinets – the personal offices of European Commissioners – in the work of the Commission. First, however much their roles may have changed, any cabinet is only as strong as the Commissioner it serves. Second, cabinets have become a bridge between long-time member states and new, inexperienced, post-2004 entrants. Third, the cabinet system helps ‘rescue’ the Commission from several barely imaginable fates. One is the one it would face if there existed no channel by which national EU capitals could truly influence and shape the work of the Commission.
