dc.description.abstractBased on Europeanisation and regulatory competition as conceptual framework, this qualitative research aims at contributing to the understanding of the EU policy-making process. It explores an aspect of Europeanisation which is rather rarely the object of present research: the role Member States play in the EU policy-making process. This thesis is a study of the elaboration of the EU IMP (Integrated Maritime Policy). The research objective is to find out the way individual Member States influenced its policy-making process in order to upload their ideas and preferences. With France as case-study Member State, this thesis researches how France has influenced the development of the EU IMP since it appeared on the EU agenda in 2005. The policy-making process of the IMP has been divided in different stages leading to the elaboration of the policy, and the strategies of France have been identified for each of them. The research also proposes an evaluation of the influence of France to see if the promotion of its interests and ideas over the whole process has born its fruits.en_US
