    The ‘Area of Freedom, Security and Justice’ in the EU has experienced significant developments during the Tampere programme (1999 – 2004). This paper makes the point that European integration is possible in areas of ‘high politics’, such as asylum policy. Significantly, the European Commission can (though not always does) play a significant role in this process - the role of a supranational policy entrepreneur that enables the normative construction of a policy. The paper analyses the high-profile case of the European Asylum Policy, particularly the four main directives, its legal and political construction, and demonstrates the significance of the Commission in the political and normative process.
