    [From the Introduction]. For some time Cabinets have been essential to the broader functioning of the European Commission. Moreover, the Cabinet of EC President Jacques Delors has been an absolutely central instrument in the Commission's accomplishment in recent times. Nonetheless very little is known about the workings of the Cabinet system inside the EC and even less about the Delors Cabinet. This essay is an initial effort to fill in such gaps, based on participant observation of the Delors Cabinet during 1991. The paper - strictly speaking - provides a general description of the structuring elements of the roles of the Delors Cabinet and the ways in which the President’s Cabinet has carried out these roles. A detailed case study of industrial policy is then presented as a lengthy Appendix to illustrate the concrete workings of these general Cabinet structures and activities.
