Example text

So it has been argued, for instance, that the EU does not incur certain responsibilities because there are others better positioned to look after the given problem. And it is said even more frequently that the EU is simply not capable of performing certain duties and hence incurs no responsibility to do so. This is of course not to say that once all the conceptual work is done we can draw up an unambiguous list of special duties to be discharged specifically by the EU, let alone hold court over EU policies of the past and the future.

27 It is very seldom the case that there is only one person standing on the shore of the lake in which a child is drowning. It is equally rare that an institution clearly stands out as alone being capable of discharging a certain moral duty. There are usually many people on the beach, and there are (even more frequently) many institutions that could take care of a certain problem. One person, however, has to be found to wade into the water and it better be quick. By the same token, it is hoped that some means of identifying those (institutional) agents that are saliently related to the problem can be found and found quickly.

Clearly, not all institutions, let alone all groups, are in possession of this capability. Thus many institutions are not in a position to absorb and process information in the required sense because their structural design simply disables them from doing so.
