      The infringement process contained in Article 258 TFEU requires the Commission, as
      guardian of the treaties, to monitor the performance of member states in relation to the implementation
      and application of EU norms. As the Commission carries out this duty it amasses

      Lorna Schrefler, Giacomo Luchetta and Felice Simonelli*
      The year 2013 has witnessed a new entry in the EU “better regulation” toolbox: the Cumulated
      Cost Assessment (CCA). The CCA is set to answer an apparently simple question:
      what is the cumulative cost imposed by a selection of EU rules and policies on a given economic

      The article accounts for the development of the European Commission's evaluation system.
      The article shows how internal and external developments shape an evaluation system aiming

    • Abstract: The EU’s new approach to policy evaluation is characterised by a focus on closing the policy

      policy intervention, whether expenditure or regulatory policy. This article analyses the main
      features and challenges of this new approach. It first studies the conceptual and interdisciplinary
      challenge of such an encompassing approach to evaluation. It then assesses the new
