Book description

Expanding European Union activity on the international scene has led to development of the legal concepts, principles and rules that govern it. External relations law and practice have also been affected by events within the EU. This volume takes stock of the recent developments in the external relations law and practice of the EC/EU and investigates the increasing interaction between these different fields of Union competence. The first part of this book addresses issues that are broadly constitutional or institutional in character. The second part deals with various aspects of substantive external relations considered in a geographical or geopolitical perspective. The third part selects two specific substantive law areas - intellectual property law and environment law - as examples that illustrate the specific relationship between domestic policy and external relations.


Review of the hardback:'… a most interesting stock-taking and up-dating on a subject in very fast movement.'

Review of the hardback:'To any reader interested in watching the European Union consolidate its position within world legal orders, assert its emerging identity, and implement policies for its own protection and which are beneficial to neighbours and other non-Member States, this series of essays is fascinating, stimulating and immensely informative. … As a whole the book is rigorously critical but unusually realistic. It achieves with distinction its objective of presenting a panoramic view of the European Union achieving more of its external objectives and with greater political and legal sensitivity than it is usually given credit for - though still excessively preoccupied with gazing at the emerging contours of its own identity.'

'This collection features an impressive line-up of top-class scholars and practitioners whose combined expertise is indeed capable of spanning the entirety of the vast and complex domain of EU external relations law and whose combined vision can discern the ‘salient features’ thereof.'
