This main goal of the project is to be achieved:
first, by evaluating the impact of Europeanization on the governance structures of the three unitary member states of the EU in the selected policy areas;
and second, by utilizing this research outcome in identifying the reforms that Poland and Hungary should undertake to facilitate the adjustment of their public policy structures to the -new- EU environment.
