Since the 1990s the European Court of Justice has provided an institutional backdrop from which the requirements of EU law regarding gambling regulation are evolving. Given the total absence of harmonisation, Member States are competent to regulate gambling conditional upon such regulation being compatible with EU law. This book analyses the regulatory approaches undertaken in France, the Netherlands and the United Kingdom regarding a variety of forms of online and offline gambling with a view to assessing the compatibility of these approaches. Furthermore it illustrates prevailing commonalities between the regimes and injects a degree of realism into the debate, softening the hard stance taken by stakeholders at opposite ends of the policy spectrum.

Is the procedural autonomy of EU Member State a myth or a reality? What should this concept be taken to mean? Starting from the analysis of requirements and principles regulating, generally speaking, the relationships between Member States' and EU law, this book provides a definition of procedural autonomy able to account for the concept's inherent limits. Out of an analysis of the more relevant EU jurisprudence, the author identifies the rationale underlying the interventions of the ECJ on issues of procedural autonomy and the common logic that emerges from it; and reveals how, in an unchanged context of 'procedural autonomy' of the Member States, national procedural law becomes more and more 'functionalized' to the requirements of effectiveness of substantive EU law. As such, we should speak of a 'functionalized procedural competence' rather than of procedural autonomy. But this is by no means a case of "Paradise Lost." The book includes a foreword by Prof. Jurgen Schwarze, one of the founding fathers of European Administrative Law. (source: Nielsen Book Data)
