Such a theoretical language provides a means for tracking the political construction of institutional responses to public problems, and the course of political developments within these new institutions once they are in place. It represents a kind of'rational reconstruction' of the dominant policy formation, using a mechanistic theory to show how political actors actively colluded in constructing the norms and structures they adhere to; outcomes which might otherwise be explained solely as the reproduction of political tradition or unquestioned habit.

Language contains within its meaning its own rules and prescriptions about its successful application to cases. Chapters 5 and 6, then, will use these analytical tools and criteria to chart the evolution and performance of the dominant policy frameworks in France and Britain, and evaluate them critically against these standards by discussing the many examples of institutional pathologies that can be found. In my 32 Philosophies of Integration final chapter, I will go on to raise the European question and the comparison with other national cases in this connection.
