As we have noted above, he assumes that as long as regulatory agencies deal with and produce Pareto-efficient decisions ; , these non-majoritarian institutions are justified, though he will stress in a more recent article they should increase procedural transparency see Majone, From this stance, they need to be in- dependent and unaccountable, since these characteristics are a guarantee against pressures of na- tional-factional interests Majone, However, coherently with the argument expressed above that regulatory agencies have also redistributive impacts, we may consider that these agen- cies are not justified fully.

Indeed, since they do not produce mere Pareto-efficient outputs, regula- tory agencies may be not so legitimate as Majone claims Hix et al. Nonetheless, Majone contributes to give us fresh insights on the changes underpinning Europe- an policy making. Particularly, he provides us with a new challenging perspective from which we may consider new trends in European public policy, notably depoliticization and the rising im- portance of efficiency while making policies.
The rise of regulatory state unveiling a form of depoliticization? In this sense, although many would oppose this claim Radaelli, ; Moravcsik, , we may argue that this rise of regulatory state in Europe corresponded to the transfer of some burning issues from the realm of deliberation Hay, 86 to one where any decision is adopted because of its supposed Pareto-optimality, as it was an unavoidable necessity.
Arguably, this delegation has not only led many issues to be depoliticized i.
Thatcher b would contradict our claim, by arguing that elected politicians exert after all a control and influence on regulatory bodies, at least at the domestic level. Indeed, he distinguishes five elements of politicization of regulatory bodies Ibidem: Nonetheless, it is important to relativize this claim. Indeed, Radaelli also argues that the EU cannot be properly considered as depoliticized, particularly showing that it is more an epistemic than technocratic community.

Rising regulatory powers: a stronger relationship between efficiency and policy- making? Referring to the normative theory of regulation, Majone recalls that the rise of regula- tion in Europe responds to the need for increased efficiency Assuming so, we may then see the rise of regulatory bodies as response to the need for efficiency4, these being increasingly referred to as a criterion for the evaluation of public policy Frohock cited in Sapru, Indeed, reflecting a political burning issue in the European countries today, for Levi- Faur , efficiency may be considered one of the founding characteristics of the new forms of policy-making.
In conclusion, clearly identifying one of the most fundamental trends in policy-making in the last decades and trying to provide explanations to the uncontested rise of regulation and regulatory bodies in Europe, Majone provides a new perspective from which we may renew our understanding of public policy in Europe today.
