International Relations and the EU
This text sets out to locate the European Union in the context of International Relations theory and to explore the ways in which the European Union frames and conducts its international relations. Each chapter deals with the three key themes of the volume: the EU as a sub-system of international relations, the EU and the processes of international relations, and the EU as a power. Part I surveys the subject's roots, Part II deals with the institutions and processes of policy formation and Part III looks at the key themes of the study of the EU as an international actor.

Policy-Making in the European Union
In recent years the European Union's membership has increased from 15 to 25 countries, it has adopted the Lisbon strategy for achieving greater economic competitiveness, taken steps towards a more purposive common foreign and defence policy, and significantly increased its efforts to deal with challenges to internal security. The new edition of this highly successful textbook brings the reader up-to-date with the range of core policy challenges facing the European Union and the ways in which they are being addressed. It includes a new chapter which lays out the primary questions of the book against the background of new research and a new chapter on employment policy which covers the major developments in this area.

Liability for Products: English Law, French Law, and European Harmonization
The EU has been active in attempting to harmonize the laws of product liability and sale of goods to consumers, with the aim of promoting fair competition, developing the internal market, and protecting consumers. But how do the resulting laws relate to existing national laws of liability and compensation? Is the resulting harmonization genuine or merely formal? Has implementation of the EC directives changed the law, but left claimants and defendants as differently treated as ever in different Member States? This comparative study considers the French and English laws governing all those who may be liable for products: their producers, their suppliers, their users and their regulators. To do so, it examines in each system the private law of tort and contract and aspects of the civil process which are important in determining liability; the administrative law concerning failures to regulate or control product safety; and the liability for products of suppliers of public services, such as water or healthcare. It considers how the substantive criminal offences affecting product safety, whether particular to products or under more general law, relate to civil liability or to compensation. The emerging picture reveals two complex and significantly different patterns of liability for products in the English and French systems, cutting across the traditional boundaries of private law, public law and criminal law. Implementation of the Product Liability Directive and Consumer Guarantees Directive required the insertion into these patterns of new elements, disharmonious with existing wider legal strategies and techniques. This study considers various problems of these directives' implementation in the French and English systems, the main issues of their proper interpretation, and the relationship of the new laws which they create with existing bases of liability. It explains the different significances given to 'fault,' 'negligence' and 'defect' (whether of safety or of contractual conformity); the relationship between judicial institutions and legal procedures in the determination of substantive legal issues; and the different relationships in the two laws studied between public and private, civil and criminal law. It concludes by offering wider comments on legal harmonisation based on the French and English experience in relation to these two directives.

EU Food Law: Protecting Consumers and Health in a Common Market (Modern Studies in European Law)
This is the first comprehensive analysis of the European Union law of food regulation. It details the way in which EU law impacts upon the production and sale of food throughout the Union. It examines the legal protection accorded to the free movement of food within the EU, discussing those circumstances in which Member States may derogate from this principle, in particular where this is done to protect human health or safeguard consumer interests. Chapter four discusses and places in context the international trade law influences on EU food law. Chapter five describes EU responses to recent food safety crises - avian influenza and BSE. The book also deals with issues such as nutrition law and policy, obesity, GMOs, organic food, animal welfare and food naming and labelling. This book offers an account of the historical, political, sociological and jurisprudential context of European Union food law. The author, who is an academic and consultant in this area, translates the legal and scientific complexities of food law into a lucid and compelling narrative. The resulting work will also prove an indispensable guide to the practitioner.

EU Consumer Law and Policy
In many respects the consumer is supposed to be the ultimate beneficiary of the process of market integration in Europe, but the EC Treaty has never included an elaborate recognition of how the EU serves the consumer interest. This highly esteemed book, now in a brand new edition, provides a comprehensive and up-to-date introduction to the subject, explaining the evolution of consumer law and policy in the EC in terms of both legislative and judicial activity. The book also situates EC consumer law and policy within its broader social, political and economic context, providing a window to a range of wider issues (and tensions) relating to Community regulatory strategies and their effect on the member states.

European Business (Amazon, Paperback)
Highlighting the unique aspects of the European business environment, this comprehensive volume focuses upon European integration, especially market integration, and explores how it has affected the strategy and behaviour of businesses with a European presence. In addition to covering topics such as the single European market, the single currency and related policy issues, this detailed volume explores issues that have hitherto not been as widely covered, such as: the European consumer, entrepreneurship, and Europe's relationship with emerging economies such as China. The book considers how European member states relate to, and affect, policy and strategy, and how Europe itself interacts with the rest of the world. The theme of integration is central to the book as Europe, although not without its significant problems, is the deepest and most advanced case of regional integration in the contemporary world and is looked to as a potential role model by regions seeking greater integration themselves. Containing numerous topical case studies which fully place theoretical issues in real world situations, this detailed volume is a valuable resource for students of international business at all levels.

The Future of Investing in Europe's Markets after MiFID (Amazon, Hardcover)
The Markets in Financial Instruments Directive (MiFID) is the biggest change programme Europe's capital markets have ever attempted. It takes all the protection away from Europe's Stock Exchanges and forces investment banks, brokers and dealers to guarantee best execution. The organisational, process and technology changes demanded by the MiFID are massive. In order to understand these challenges, industry commentator Chris Skinner has gathered the views of Europe's leading figures in the MiFID community to discuss its implications. From an introduction from the European Business School and European Commission, through the views of leaders in the key constituencies of MiFID Connect and the MiFID Joint Working Group, through to organisations supporting the markets such as Reuters and SWIFT, this book provides a 360 degree perspective of the world of investing in Europe's markets after the MiFID implementation. Anyone who has anything to do with dealing, trading and investing in European equities and instruments will find this book an essential guide to the markets now and into the future. With this book as their guide, readers will understand: the key MiFID business issues; how to implement the directive; and how it will affect the markets once it comes into force.

The Substantive Law of the EU: The Four Freedoms (Amazon, Paperback)
This book focuses on the substantive law of the EU with regard to the free movement of goods, persons, services, and capital. An introductory chapter outlines the background to EU law in this sphere; the role of free trade theory, the development of economic integration until the present day, and the fundamental principles underpinning this development. The following sections then provide a detailed examination of the major categories - goods, persons, services and capital - and a concluding section deals with the legal issues raised by the ongoing process of harmonisation within the single market. The author makes judicious use of case studies to illustrate and develop central issues, diagrams and flowcharts to clarify the more complex areas of this sphere of EU law.

An Introduction to Competition Law (Amazon, paperback)
Competition law is a subject of central importance. Reports in the press concerning the subject appear almost daily. An accessible introduction to this legal field is thus indispensable for students and practitioners alike. This book is intended to serve as a first acquaintance with competition law. It is written in particular for students who intend to study a foundation course in competition law. The current competition law in the UK consists of two main levels: EC competition law and UK competition law. In this introduction both levels are covered, along with an abbreviated introduction to the EC rules on state aids. An important function of this book is to provide an insight into the combined system of UK and EC competition law. This means that, in spite of the introductory character of the book, a large number of topics needs to be discussed. Without coverage of the basic principles of competition law, the system and its workings are impossible both to understand and explain. Therefore, for the three main subjects (the prohibition of cartels, the prohibition of the abuse of a position of dominance and the supervision of 'concentrations' (mergers and acquisitions)) extensive examples, drawn from European and UK practice, have been provided. These examples are then used in the explanation of the general principles, taking into account the changes as a result of the recent introduction of Regulation 1/2003. With this approach, the book aims to reach a broad range of readers: students, teachers in further and higher education, officials and practising lawyers who are not usually faced with competition law issues in their everyday working lives. Extra information has also been included in the footnotes, indicating references to the more specialised literature where this seemed appropriate. In this way, the authors hope to provide a clear, up-to-date introduction to this complex and fascinating area of the law, while also giving scope to the reader to develop and extend his or her knowledge of the subject still further.

Impact of EU Law on the Regulation of International Air Transportation
On 5 November 2002, the European Court of Justice delivered its 'open-skies' judgment, a landmark decision which may be the beginning of a new era in the regulation of international air law. The consequences of this judgment may not only affect the European Union and its Member States; this book shows how it could change the future regulation of international aviation worldwide.The first part of this book describes the difficulties arising from the fact that the competence for the regulation of air transportation in Europe is divided between the EU and the Member States. This division of power will also affect the conclusion of air-service agreements made with countries outside of Europe. In the second part of the book, the author examines a subject that was not part of the 'open-skies' judgment, but which he believes will become a problematic consequence: the distribution of air-traffic rights within the European Union.

EU Regulation of Chemicals: REACH (Rapra Review Reports) (Paperback)
Chemical control measures in the EU are soon to be dramatically revised, and this "Rapra Review Report" sets the scene by describing the key facts of the existing measures and the objectives of the future chemicals policy: REACH. REACH - Registration, Evaluation and Authorisation of Chemicals - will place a duty on companies that manufacture, import and use chemicals in the EU to assess the risks arising from their use and manage any risks identified. With industry concerns about the cost of compliance in terms of testing, in-house management, and scientific and regulatory advice and consultancy, this "Rapra Review Report" presents the essential details of the objectives and timescales involved with the legislation. The objective of the new legislation is to ensure a high level of protection for human health and the environment whilst maintaining an efficient internal market and innovation and competitiveness in the chemical industry. The author covers the main points, with abstracts from the Rapra Polymer Library identifying the sources for further reading on this subject. This "Rapra Review Report" is essential reading for chemical and material manufacturers and suppliers. It describes clearly the forthcoming fundamental changes to chemical control in the EU.

Aspects of European Cultural Diversity (What Is Europe?)
The word 'Europe' is seen and heard constantly, in newspapers, on television and children are taught about it in school. But what does it really mean to us? Does it have the same meaning for everyone? How does it affect our everyday lives? Do we consider ourselves to be Europeans and what does that mean in practice? This book concentrates on aspects of European cultural diversity. The four essays included deal with language, education, the mass media and everyday culture. The issues under discussion are those that strongly influence the way in which we define our common, everyday identity. They are also issues which determine our access to opportunities of different kinds. The book is designed to enable readers to identify those factors which make them and their own environment unique and to place themselves within the context of everyday Europe.
