Having explored the resources Germany has in relation to the EU, we now turn to German policy in the EU and its formulation. The making of German European policy entails aggregating domestic economic and political interests (see Chapter 4) as well as processing them through the policy-making institutions. In this chapter we explore the institutional framework, guided by the proposition that Germany’s domestic institutions matter. Of key importance, of course, is how the institutions matter specifically to the issue of German power in the EU.
