How has the EU's economic crisis affected the development of economic law in the Union during the Barroso II Commission? This book contributes to the debate by examining EU economic law from a contextual and policy-oriented perspective.
The expert authors explore areas such as the EMU and internal market, and emphasise the important fields of public procurement, taxation, and intellectual property rights. The investigation proceeds along themes such as harmonization, institutional interplay, non-economic values, and international actions.
The authors conclude that, during the crisis, the attention of the Barroso Commission has focused too narrowly on the most urgent problems, failing to consider longer-term issues to spark off bold policy endeavours, and break inter-institutional blockades.
This book will be of use to scholars interested in EU economic law, integration, and the economic crisis. Policy-makers, other practitioners and advanced students can also benefit from points raised in this timely monograph.
