This chapter outlines the nature of the common strategic agenda around which strategic players have been recruited to the European Union (EU) network. It provides a historical overview of the formation of the two networks (UK and Ireland) and how they have expanded over time in response to the intermittent growth of EU competence. Having mapped the network as a whole and its ‘core’, the chapter then examines the codes of conduct that govern formal interaction between players: that is, their formally defined roles and responsibilities, their function and location within the network, and the informal norms and procedures which govern strategic networking. The chapter is concerned primarily with those core players (or network ‘managers’) responsible for managing and coordinating EU national policy (the prime minister's/cabinet offices, foreign ministry, permanent representation, finance department and legal advisers). It also briefly reflects on the changing role of sub-national players over the past decade.
