T06P02 - Innovative approaches to multi-level implementation research: Moving beyond legal compliance

Member-state implementation is the subject of modern implementation research ever since Pressman and Wildavsky (1974) studied “[h]ow Great Expectations in Washington Are Dashed in Oakland.” Multi-level implementation research retains a strong top-down focus on member state compliance with central state decisions. However, particularly in EU implementation research it is argued that we should move beyond: First, “beyond compliance”; second, beyond the prevailing top-down perspectives that view the implementation of superordinate law as hierarchical guidance from above, and third, beyond the separation of research on national and international multi-level implementation. This panel invites contributions of both established and young scholars that “move beyond” and take an innovative and systematic comparative approach to multi-level implementation.

Chairs:  Eva Thomann and Fritz Sager, University of Bern
