Lee Miles complements Dashwood’s legal analysis with one derived from a political science perspective. He argues that a useful macro-model for understanding the Union as a system of governance—especially its stability, but also its sub-optimality— lies in ‘fusion theory’, ie the merging of resources by Member State and EU-based actors into joint institutions and complex procedures. That theory stresses the importance to the Union’s constitutional structure of the consent of national political elites, based on the Union’s ability to deliver on domestic policy goals; such consent cannot be taken for granted and is as capable of producing a more differentiated and loosely bound Union as a more integrated and cohesive one.

Those challenges have moved steadily up the Union’s political agenda in recent years, as affirmed in the 2007 Energy Policy for Europe, and their legal framework would be recast by the introduction of a dedicated Energy Chapter by the Treaty of Lisbon. Jeff Kenner examines another Community policy in the throes of adjusting to the complexities and uncertainties of the modern Union in its changing global context and with its evolving global roles: labour law. The idea of ‘flexicurity’ set out by the Commission in its Green Paper on Modernising Labour Law is intended to balance more flexible employment laws and working practices so as to facilitate and stimulate economic growth, with the promise that workers are actively supported in the challenge of adapting to the changing workplace and labour market (for example) through retraining and appropriate social support.
