Abstract

The article is an attempt to prepare a background for more detailed empirical studies of the "Europeanization-effect" on the polity, policy making, and societal value orientations in Poland. Europeanization is understood as a multi-directional and multi-level adaptive pressure exerted under the influence of both external and internal exigencies by the EU system on its current and potential subsystems and vice versa, as well as by the subsystems on one another. Its study is approached in terms of new institutionalism implying a broad understanding of institutions. In an attempt to draw a conceptual map and compile a research toolkit of a kind, it offers a shortcut review through the new institutionalist literature on the subject. It is further illustrated with developments in a few socio-political arenas where Europeanization might be seen at work. A more extensive case study of Polish regionalization is included to show that using a pluralistic new institutionalist approach traces of Europeanization could be found even in areas where direct, hard adaptive pressure is said to be weak.
