This book has been written in turbulent times. ‘Revolution’ seems to be one of the keywords of 2020. We are experiencing the simultaneous effects of multiple phenomena which may be defined as revolution. The unfolding of information and technology revolution is obvious with both its advantages and disadvantages. Public discontent is widespread. It takes the shape of discursive disenchantment with the state of affairs, but also the form of revolts and mass disobedience that is close to civil war.

With the transfer of ever more tasks and competences to the European level the EU’s administration has become increasingly complex, with ‘agencification’ as the most visible sign of this differentiation. This book offers a much-needed analytical overview of the field, with the aim of improving our understanding of administration at the European level, and indeed of improving the administration itself.

According to Professor Zeno-Zencovich’s reflections on Giovanni Bognetti’s Dividing Powers, which begin these collected chapters, the separation of powers, is an “issue which for nearly three centuries has occupied the minds and pens of political theorists and of lawyers.” There is no doubt that separation of powers occupies our minds and pens nowadays too, because (as Professor Zeno-Zencovich always points out) far from being “some kind of eternal rule of mankind,” it derives from “a specific historical and cultural context” and for this reason it should express the deep transformations of the relationships among the branches of government over time.

Legal scholarship traditionally analyses direct democracy in the context of the principle of people’s sovereignty and its relation to representative democracy. The separation of powers is a different doctrine which is usually taken into consideration when designing the status and competences of state organs, analysing their activity and role. There may even be a conflict between the exercise of direct democracy and the separation of powers, as the second principle influences the relations of state organs established on a representative basis. However, even if one acknowledges that the representative and direct forms of power can be reconciled this does not necessarily lead to an analysis of the relationship between the two within the framework of the separation of powers.

The sovereign-debt crisis made necessary the bail-out of Greece, and then of other members of the Eurozone, even though article 125 TFEU prohibits bail-outs. The IMF participated in the bail-out programs, financed them in part, and provided to the European Union (EU) the know-how for their preparation and supervision. Conditionality is part of the operational framework of the IMF, and consists of the obligations of a debtor state in need of the assistance of the IMF. Conditionality requires the debtor’s sovereign decision to consent to certain conditions imposed by the creditor, in exchange for financial assistance. To put it more bluntly, it is an accepted limitation of sovereignty, in exchange for money. Conditionality is relatively simple in its assumptions, and reflects the unequal negotiating power between creditor and debtor. As evidenced by the case of Greece, the sovereignty of a virtually bankrupt state may be severely restricted.
