European integration has been most successful at a legal level and European influences have left an indelible mark on English and United Kingdom Public Law. These influences must be fully understood by students, academics and practitioners if they are to understand our public law and its future direction. To fail to appreciate the European context in which our domestic law is developing is to fail to comprehend our public law.
This completely revised book, which was first published in 2003, examines the debate surrounding the influence of European Union and European Convention law, as well as the influence of national laws on the public law of the United Kingdom in a thematic and analytical manner. The book examines what influence the common law has extended on other European legal systems.
The book seeks to unravel the mutual influence brought about by closer legal integration within the European experience at supra-national, national and sub-national levels. This book will prove to be an invaluable guide to the ever developing European context of our domestic public law.
This new edition comes at a time of growing political disenchantment with European integration, at a time when the Union is growing in size and diversity and at a time when failure in consensus has led to non-Union measures for member states. Nonetheless, Europe has profoundly influenced our national legal development and that development must be understood.
