In analyzing the fisheries sector this book explores key issues relating to the EU polity as a whole, including the distribution of power, the representation of interests at national and transnational levels, the allocation of budgets and resources, and the EU's place as an actor on the global stage. In this way Lequesne uses the Common Fisheries Policy to provide a varied illustration of European policy in action. The scholarship is based on high quality primary research, carefully conducted and articulated. The result is a fascinating insight into the fisheries sector which reveals broader characteristics of the EU.
