Governing in Europe explores strategies at the national level that could succeed in maintaining welfare state goals even under conditions of international economic competition. It also discusses the conditions under which European policy could play a protective and enabling role with regard to these national solutions. The author suggests that if these opportunities should be used, multi-level governance in Europe could indeed regain both effectiveness and legitimacy.
