The move towards a system of integrated administration in the EU poses
considerable legal challenges. This book explores ways in which
accountability, legality, legitimacy and efficiency can be ensured in the
multiple forms of co-operation of European and national administrations in
the delivery of EU and EC policies.

Examining the procedures and structures of European administrative
integration, this innovative book will be a stimulating read for academics,
researchers and both undergraduate and postgraduate students in European law.
‘But European administrative law is a work under construction. This book helps to explore the current state of affairs.’
– Thomas Gross, Common Market Law Review

‘Drs Hofmann and Türk made a name for themselves in the field of EU administrative law with their first collection of edited essays, EU Administrative Governance (Edward Elgar) 2006, which was well reviewed and made an important contribution to the subject. The focus of their new collection, Legal Challenges in EU Administrative Law, is accountability, internal through structures and procedures and external through courts and auditors. With its many useful contributions from well-known experts it promises well.’
