EU Budgetary Politics and Its Implications for the Bioeconomy

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterAcademicpeer-review


This chapter discusses the process of EU budgetary policymaking and its implications for the bioeconomy. Negotiations about the Multiannual Financial Framework belong to the most contentious of EU politics. These negotiations do not only shape the size of the overall budget and allocations to the various programs, they also have more indirect effects by altering power constellations and rules of the game in sectoral policy processes. The chapter elaborates the most important of these dynamics and associated controversies, with a particular emphasis on the EU’s biggest spending policy: the Common Agricultural Policy. The chapter ends with setting out various other budgetary developments and proposals that are relevant to the bioeconomy.
