This book assesses the use and limitations of the principal-agent model in a context of increasingly complex political systems such as the European Union. Whilst a number of conceptual, theoretical and methodological challenges need to be addressed, the authors show that the principal-agent model can still provide deeper insights into a wide range of political phenomena. Through an empirical analysis of multiple principal-agent relations in the EU, covering a variety of policy fields and political actors, the volume refines our theoretical understanding of the politics of delegation and discretion in the EU. It will appeal to scholars in interested in EU politics and policy, public administration and governance, and international organisations. The chapter ‘Multiple principals preferences, different types of oversight mechanisms, and agent’s discretion in trade negotiations’ is published open access under a CC BY 4.0 license via link.springer.com.

This book investigates the European involvement in managing the nuclear dispute with Iran, shedding new light on EU foreign policy-making. The author focuses on the peculiar format through which the EU managed Iran’s nuclear issue: a ‘lead group’ consisting of France, Germany and the UK and the High Representative for EU foreign policy (E3/EU). The experience of the E3/EU lends credibility to the claim that lead groups give EU foreign policy direction and substance. The E3/EU set up a negotiating framework that worked as a de-escalating tool, a catalyst for Security Council unity and a forum for crisis management. They inflicted pain on Iran by adopting a comprehensive sanctions regime, but did so only having secured US commitment to a diplomatic solution. Once the deal was reached, they defended it vigorously. The E3/EU may have been supporting actors, but their achievements were real.

The contributors to the volume analyze the EU from a surprisingly rare perspective, namely by exploring how it is influenced by multilateral institutions. There has recently been a dramatic increase in interaction between the EU and multilateral institutions, yet this interaction has almost without exception been studied from the bottom-up perspective. This volume reverses the causal arrow and shows that international institutions shape EU policies and the policy-making process, as well as acting as a source of preferences and strategies for EU stances internationally. The impact is (under certain conditions) strong and rather frequently unintended and unexpected. Sometimes the influence goes as far as to foster small-scale processes of EU integration. Scholars with expertise in different areas have contributed to this endeavour, thus allowing the volume to cover a wide range of international institutions and their effects on the EU.
