This paper takes stock of the devolution process within the European Commission (EC). It looks into trends and experiences gained by EC delegations, EC headquarters and partners in third countries. Its aim is not to exhaustively assess or evaluate the devolution process. Instead the paper presents a snapshot of the devolution process, raising issues rather than presenting findings or recommendations.
