A number of attempts have been made, especially by the European Commission, to encourage common rules of conduct across the EU institutions. This paper will concentrate on the decision-making process in two cases: the successful creation of a common register for lobbyists; and the (so-far) failed attempt to set up an inter-institutional advisory committee on public ethics. The aim of the paper is to examine the conditions under which successful inter-institutional cooperation occurs at EU level in cases where the EU institutions seek to regulate (and constrain) their own behaviour.
