This chapter presents a modified version of Stone Sweet’s and Sandholtz’s (1997, 1998) ‘supranational governance’ approach to account for the integration dynamics of the EU. It argues that EU negotiations are conducted within a transnational political space, and that transnational actors are capable of exerting their influence. Divisions within the EU’s political space can be understood as a clash of capitalisms between two broad coalitions - the liberal and regulatory coalitions which are centred on different conceptions of how the EU ought to be governed. The constructed framework can therefore be used to guide the analysis within the following three case studies.
