How is the idea of the ‘person’ conceived in European law? This question has come more to fore for European lawyers and this innovative edited collection argues that the European Union has had a transformative effect on the category of the person.

Taking a two part approach, it firstly looks at the legal mechanisms used when constructing the person in EU law. Once that is established, the collection looks at the question outside the field of EU, exploring the question from the sociological and philosophical perspective. Bringing together world experts to debate the question of personhood, this collection represents important and rigorous scholarship on this key question.
