"there can be no doubt that An Emergent Executive Order is poised to make a significant contribution to European public administration as well as to debates about the Europeanisation of domestic executives. It brings intriguing data to light about variation in officials perceptions and behaviour, and it points to future avenues of research that will incite scholars to explore the subject in even more depth." - Mareike Kleine, West European Politics
