Titles in the Complete series combine extracts from a wide range of primary materials with clear explanatory text to provide readers with a complete introductory resource. Complete EU Law
combines extracts from leading cases and articles to take a fresh and modern look at the institutional and substantive law of the EU and consider its development from a post-Lisbon standpoint. It starts by looking at the origins of European Union integration and the sources of European Union law, and considers the role of EU institutions within the legislative process. It then explores the relationship between the EU and the Member States by considering the effect of the supremacy of EU law and how, within a UK context, this impacts upon the principle of parliamentary sovereignty. The impact of EU law on national law and the domestic courts - in the form of the direct and indirect effect of EU law, remedies for its breach, and requests by the national courts for preliminary rulings from the Court of Justice - is discussed in detail. The book also examines the obligations that EU law creates for Member States and looks at the operation of infringement actions and Member State liability in damages when persistent breaches of EU law may occur. The book also explores the position of an individual or a business within the context of EU integration and considers the relationship between them, Member States and the EU institutions by examining the protection of human rights in the EU. The book then discusses economic integration within the internal Market and how EU law regulates the rights of individuals and businesses under the ‘four freedoms’, focusing on the free movement of persons and goods. Finally, the book considers competition law and its enforcement within Member States.Less
