The reform weakens work principles in the Commission such as specialist expertise, seniority and tenure, political initiative and hierarchy. It promotes generalist skills, performance-related criteria, loyalty to political masters and networktype organization (Bauer & Knill, 2007; Bouckaert, 2008; Cini, 2007; Suleiman, 2003).
From Integration to Integrity examines the European Commission's administrative ethics in the events leading up to the resignation of the College of Commissioners.
This book is the first to examine how the European Commission has addressed concerns about its ethical standards since 1999. References to the European gravy train, to instances of nepotism or patronage, and even corruption and fraud are commonplace in the popular press. However, until now, there has been no study of the European institutions themselves to question the validity of these claims, or to explore the extent to which the European Commission has responded to and resolved such problems and/or criticism.
The European Union institutions have always taken an interest in their own internal governance. In the 1990s, this interest began to be characterised by a greater reflexivity, increasingly allied to the concept of ‘good governance’. One example of this was in the field of public ethics where the European Commission came to recognise the importance of establishing structures and policies to govern the conduct of public servants (whether MEPs, Commissioners or EU officials).

Professor Michelle Cini Professor of European Politics and Head of School Head of School. I have been especially interested in the politics of reform within the EU, and on issues of organisational and administrative culture. More specifically I have recently been working on a project that looks at how the EU institutions are embedding notions of good (ethical) governance within their structures and procedures during processes of reform.

European integration has primarily come about through the European Union and its policies. In antiquity, the Roman Empire brought about integration of multiple European territories.
