    Abstract

    [From the Introduction]. The European Union's migration policy has evolved rapidly over the past two decades. This should actually have come as a surprise to many observers. Migration policy - understood here to encompass asylum, refugee and immigration policy - is generally seen as an essential matter of national sovereignty. This is reflected by the intergovernmental policy-making procedures of European migration policy. But whereas intergovernmentalism is usually associated with stagnating European integration, migration policy - as a common European policy - has evolved nonetheless. It shall be claimed that the unlikely development of the European policy domain results from a process I shall call "intergovernmental Europeanization." At its root is dense intergovernmental cooperation between various levels of government. Creating shared identities and problem definitions among administrators and members of executive agencies, dense intergovernmental cooperation facilitates the issuance of harmonized policies and European solutions, even if supranational governance is absent.
