As a result, the member state level dominates the European level as a focal point for citizens’ political loyalty and interests. Furthermore, decisionmakers at the European level are less directly accountable to (national or European) publics than domestic decision-makers in most democracies.

Political parties, which are important channels to the political agenda in many member states, are much weaker and less integrated at the European level.
It is to the factors that determine this agenda success that we now turn. 3 Agenda-setting in domestic politics: Conflict expansion, framing and institutions The previous section discussed the reasons why political actors bring an issue to the EU agenda (or by extension, the agenda of any international organization). However, this is only one side of the story: an actor may want to place an issue (high) onto the EU agenda, but this does not mean that it will succeed in doing so. The literature on domestic agenda-setting forms a good starting point for identifying potentially relevant factors in this process of placing an issue onto the agenda.

Officially, there are a total of nine Council configurations, but within each of these the actual participants may vary further, depending on the specific issue at hand. As another way of easing the burden on the Council’s agenda, all Council decisions are prepared in a meeting of the permanent representatives of each EU member state, the Committee of Permanent Representatives (COREPER).
