This article presents a theoretical examination of the role that expert groups, particularly 'epistemic communities' and 'advocacy coalitions', play in the European Union (EU) process. It discusses the impact such groups have on EU policy outputs and on the input of the EU population as a whole in this system. In order to gauge this impact, the article examines the different modes of governance that exist in the EU and assesses the contribution of expert groups. The article contends that EU governance requires an elaboration of the public's role and offers some suggestions for improving the EU system.
