Abstract

Non-hierarchical modes of governance, such as the 'open method of co-ordination' (OMC), require particular prerequisites to operate effectively. This article points to three essential components of any regime, then assesses their operation in two 'real' OMCs, pensions and information society. Given the finding of defective regimes, this article argues that the observed patterns are not surprising given the high demands that non-hierarchical governance places on participants. In addition, the context of the politics of the EU suggests that non-hierarchical governance is inappropriate as a means of inducing policy reform.
