Abstract
In the last two decades, the EU executive has undergone profound changes. Since 'Europe 1992' the EU's objectives of its increasingly numerous policies are increasingly ambitious, to such an extent that they cannot be achieved anymore by relying on the Member States' administrations, which are as a rule responsible for the implementation of EU law. Instead of addressing this deficit by empowering the Commission, as prescribed by the EU Treaties, the institutions have resorted to a solution not foreseen in the Treaties: the establishment and empowerment of EU agencies. In absence of a clear legal basis or a framework in secondary law, the resulting process of agencification has proceeded in an ad hoc manner. The research aims to answer the question what the limits (legal as well as political) are to this institutional innovation and to suggest possible improvements to anchor the agencies more firmly in the EU's constitutional and institutional law.
