This chapter discusses the analytical framework of the analysis of informal governance within the Eurogroup. It reviews the current state of the literature on the EMU, the Council of Ministers, and on innovative modes of European governance. This literature focuses on the empirically most closely related institutions and styles of governance. By building on the findings of this literature and responding to its theoretical deficiencies, the discussion then follows up the relevant theoretical pathways in more detail. It substantiates the core argument of the book through three central working hypotheses. The discussion concludes with the introduction of the methodology organising the analysis of the empirical information.
