Jessop, Bob (2004) Multi-level Governance and Multi-level Metagovernance Changes in the European Union as Integral Moments in the Transformation and Reorientation of Contemporary Statehood.

Bob Jessop seeks to criticize the â��principal theoretical approaches to EU government and/or governance from the viewpoint of a strategic-relational approach to the stateâ��. In particular, Jessop considers the rival approaches for understanding multi-level governance in the EU that can be conceptualized as â��state-centricâ�� and â��simple governanceâ�� perspectives. The failure of these approaches leads him to propose an alternative account â��in terms of the strategic selectivity of the state as a social relation, issues of governance failure, meta governance, and meta governance failureâ��. From this critique, Jessop suggests that what we are perhaps witnessing is the â��re-scaling of the sovereign state or the emergence of just one more arena in which national states pursue national interestsâ��.
