Abstract:It is no secret that the in the aftermath of the 2008 financial crisis the European Union surfaced more divided than ever, with an even steeper difference between the new and the old Member States. This political and economic schism is spreading its effects throughout the whole “body” of the European Union and, of course, these effects can also be highlighted in the way Member States comply with EU policy. There are theoretical perspectives aimed at predicting the way Member States relate to the compliance issue. One such theory was put forward by Gerda Falkner and Oliver Treib who define four distinct worlds of compliance to EU policy, characteristic to different parts of Europe. Following in their footsteps, this paper will investigate the factors that affect the implementation of EU policy. This will reveal a different perspective regarding the way Member States comply with EU policy, paving the way for a more detailed picture of the process. To do this it is necessary to analyze a complete policy cycle in order to reveal relevant information regarding different levels of compliance across the EU. The policy area that is investigated is in regard to employment, this being a crucial issue in the current economic and political environment in the EU. 1.
