In line with rationalist theories of group choice, we argue that enlargements increase the costs of organizing decisions, i.e. transaction costs. Increasing transaction costs, in turn, slow down EU law-making. We test this theory by estimating Cox regression models that incorporate time-varying covariates on all directives, regulations and decisions submitted by the European Commission between 1976 and 2006. In contrast to previous analyses, we show that an increase in group size indeed slows down EU law-making.</dcterms:abstract> <dc:creator>Hertz, Robin</dc:creator> <foaf:homepage rdf:resource="http://localhost:8080/jspui"/> <dc:contributor>Hertz, Robin</dc:contributor> <bibo:uri rdf:resource="http://kops.uni-konstanz.de/handle/123456789/18510"/> <dcterms:bibliographicCitation>Publ. in: European Union Politics ; 12 (2011), 2. - S. 193-215</dcterms:bibliographicCitation> <dc:contributor>Leuffen, Dirk</dc:contributor> <void:sparqlEndpoint rdf:resource="http://localhost/fuseki/dspace/sparql"/> <dc:rights>terms-of-use</dc:rights> <dcterms:isPartOf rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/rdf/resource/123456789/42"/> <dcterms:available rdf:datatype="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema#dateTime">2012-02-29T10:23:21Z</dcterms:available> <dc:creator>Leuffen, Dirk</dc:creator> <dc:language>eng</dc:language> <dcterms:rights rdf:resource="https://rightsstatements.org/page/InC/1.0/"/> <dcterms:title>Too Big to Run? : Analyzing the impact of enlargement on the speed of EU decision making</dcterms:title> <dspace:isPartOfCollection rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/rdf/resource/123456789/42"/> <dc:date rdf:datatype="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema#dateTime">2012-02-29T10:23:21Z</dc:date> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
