While the European integration project is facing new challenges, abandonments and criticism, it is often forgotten that there are powerful legal instruments that allow citizens to protect and extend their rights. These instruments and the actions taken to activate them are often overlooked and deliberately ignored in the mainstream debates. This book presents a selection of cases in which legal institutions, social movements, avant-gardes and minorities have tried, and often succeeded, to enhance the current state of human rights through traditional as well as innovative actions. The chapters of this book investigate some of the cases in which the gap between the conventionally recognized rights and those advocated is becoming wider and where traditionally disadvantaged groups raise new problems or new issues are emerging concerning individual freedom, transparency and accountability, which are not yet properly addressed in the current political and legal landscape. Can political institutions and courts without coercive power of last resort actually foster more progressive rights? This book suggests that the expansion of human rights might be a viable strategy to generate a proper European citizenship. This text will be of key interest to scholars and students of European Studies, Politics and International Relations, Law and Society, Sociology and Migration Studies and more broadly to NGOs and policy advisers.

  • Introducing the collaborative economy
  • Market access and consumer protection in the collaborative economy
  • Data in the collaborative economy
  • The collaborative economy and EU competition law
  • Labour relations in the collaborative economy
  • Dispute resolution
  • The regulation of the collaborative economy.
`Disruptive innovation', `the fourth industrial revolution', `one of the ten ideas that will change the world'; the collaborative/sharing economy is shaking existing norms. It poses unprecedented challenges in terms of both material policies and governance in almost all aspects of EU law. This book explores the application - or indeed inadequacy - of existing EU rules in the context of the collaborative economy. It analyses the novelties introduced by the collaborative economy and discusses the specific regulatory needs and instruments employed therein, most notably self-regulation. Further, it aims to elucidate the legal status of the parties involved (traders, consumers, prosumers) in these multi-sided economies, and their respective roles in the provision of services, especially with regard to liability issues. Moreover, it delves into a sector-specific examination of the relevant EU rules, especially on data protection, competition, consumer protection and labour law, and comments on the uncertainties and lacunae produced therein. It concludes with the acute question of whether fresh EU regulation would be necessary to avoid fragmentation or, on the contrary, if such regulation would create unnecessary burdens and stifle innovation. Taking a broad perspective and pragmatic view, the book provides a comprehensive overview of the collaborative economy in the context of the EU legal landscape.

The Natura 2000 network of protected areas is the centrepiece of European Union nature policy, currently covering almost one-fifth of the EU's entire land territory plus large marine areas. This vast EU-wide network, which aims to conserve Europe's most valuable and threatened species and habitats, has major impacts on land use throughout all Member States of the EU. This book critically assesses the origins and implementation of the Natura 2000 network, established under the Birds Directive of 1979 and the Habitats Directive of 1992. Based on original archival research and interviews with key participants, the book records a detailed history of the origins and negotiation of Natura 2000 policy and law, with the history of EU environmental policy provided as a framework. An historical institutionalist approach is adopted, which emphasises the importance of understanding legal and policy development as processes that unfold over time. Three phases in the history of EU environmental policy are identified and described, and the history of EU nature policy is placed within the context of these three phases. Informed by this history, the author presents a comprehensive summary and assessment of the law and policy that protects Natura 2000 sites at EU level, and reviews the nature conservation outcomes for the targeted species and habitats. The book reveals how a knowledge of the history of Natura 2000 enriches our understanding of key issues such as conflicts in establishing and conserving the Natura 2000 network, EU integration in the field of nature conservation, and the future of EU nature policy.

In 2017, the Court of Justice of the European Union (CJEU) celebrated 65 years and has thereby achieved retirement age in most EU Member States. If it were to retire, the Court would be able to look back at a fascinating journey, from its relatively humble beginning on 4 December 1952 as part of the then brand-new European Coal and Steel Community, to one of the most important and exciting judicial institutions in Europe, perhaps in the entire world. The need to understand the CJEU has never been greater. This volume is dedicated to improving our understanding of the Court in relationship to other actors, including other EU institutions, the Member States, national courts, third countries, and international organisations. It is based on a conference arranged by the Swedish Network for European Legal Studies (SNELS) held at Stockholm University in December 2016, and includes contributions by both lawyers and researchers in other fields, as well as current members of the Court.

  • Introduction
  • Subsidiarity and proportionality and the balance of power between the EU and the member states
  • Subsidiarity and proportionality and the role of the CJEU in relation to interpretation of shared competence
  • The CJEU, subsidiarity and determining the residency rights of EU citizens
  • Subsidiarity and proportionality review by the CJEU
  • Conclusion.
In the Court of Justice of the European Union, Subsidiarity and Proportionality Kate Shaw sets out how a subsidiarity and proportionality review applied to competences could be anchored by the Court of Justice when balancing the competing interests in cases concerning the residency rights of EU citizens. The book also considers the extent to which a court which is dedicated to enhancing the European project is really able to be an independent arbiter between the EU and the Member States in this context. Both the legal reasoning of the Court and the controversial nature of residency rights of EU citizens are legally and politically very topical at the moment and of interest to legal academics and law students.

Following the success of EuSoCo's book, Life Time Contracts: Social Long-term Contracts in Labour, Tenancy and Consumer Credit Law (Eleven International Publishing, 2014), in which EuSoCo laid out sixteen Principles of Life Time Contracts to apply whenever individuals seek to form or continue such social long-term relationships, in this book, we expand thereon, making the Principles more accessible and useful to practitioners, judges, and even policy makers. As society depends on individuals being able to meet certain basic necessities, the need to elaborate common principles to preserve and protect Life Time Contracts remains crucial. In this book we focus on how practitioners, judges, and policy makers can embed these sixteen Principles in the existing legal framework. To aid them in this task, we expand on the way these Principles can be used to interpret and inform general contract law, with a special emphasis on employment, consumer credit, and residential tenancy contracts. We pay particular attention to those areas affected by the digital economy and by regulatory measures introduced in response to the economic crisis and recession.

  • Introduction
  • Background information on biological invasions
  • Gaps in the global legal framework and the regional alternative
  • The European Union and its role in addressing the threat of biological invasions : regional environmental governance at work
  • EU regulation 1143/2014 : genesis, adoption and implementation : an assessment
  • Conclusions.
The consequences of the introduction and spread of invasive alien species in non-native ecosystems is an area of growing interest for ã international policymakers and regulators. Globalisation has increased the rate and magnitude of biological invasions, resulting in huge environmental, economic and social costs. Until recently, the effectiveness of international efforts to provide a coordinated response to the threat of alien invasions have been limited. This book considers the existing Multilateral Environmental Agreements and looks at the potential role of regional environmental governance, particularly in consideration of the adoption of the European Parliament and Council regulation 1143/2014 on the management and control of invasive species, to provide an effective response to this global threat.

Data protection is the statutory protection provided to protect the privacy of individuals with regard to personal data. Various obligations are imposed on persons who keep personal data, eg that the data must be accurate and kept for lawful purposes. EU Data Protection Law provides an analysis of the EU's proposed General Data Protection Regulation. The book analyses the rights of the data subject including rights to information, access, rectification, erasure (right to be forgotten), restriction, portability and objection. It examines in detail the role and responsibilities of controllers and processors together with governance (including the Data Protection Officer) and risk (data protection by design and default, the Data Protection Impact Assessment, data security and the notification of subjects). The role of data protection authorities, the European Data Protection Board and enforcement mechanisms such as fines and other liabilities and penalties are also explored. Other relevant Directives are discussed together with appropriate case law.

European contract law is not only a core aspect of European private law but also plays a highly important role in the development of contract law at national level. However, European contract law's contribution and significance are often overlooked and its content, methods and objectives not fully understood. This revised and updated second edition unlocks European contract law by providing fundamental information about the central EU legislation, court decisions, and academic projects in order to show how a system arises from the dialogue between the different sources. Moreover, this second edition takes into account the legislative proposals and challenges resulting from the `Digital Revolution' and the development of a 21st century contract law and also incorporates the new Proposed Digital Content Directive; Proposed Geo-blocking Regulation; Mortgage Directive and Package Travel Directive.

European Contract Law in the Digital Age offers an overview of the interactions between digital technologies and contract law and takes into account the two (late) 2015 EU Commission proposals on digital contracting and digital content. The book goes beyond these proposals and is grouped around the three pillars of an architecture of contract law in the digital age: the regulatory framework; digital interventions over the life-cycle of the contract; and digital objects of contracting. The discussion of the regulatory framework looks at the platforms used for digital contracting - such as Airbnb - which are particularly important instruments for the formation of digital contracts. In describing the life-cycle of the contract, this book shows how four key technologies (digital platforms, Big Data analytics, artificial intelligence, and blockchain) are being used at different stages of the contractual process, from the screening for contractual partners to formation, enforcement and interpretation. Furthermore, digitally facilitated contracting increasingly relates to digital content - for instance software or search engines - as the object of the contract but while this area has notably been shaped by the proposed Directive on Contracts for the Supply of Digital Content, this work shows that important questions remain unanswered. This book highlights how the digital dimension opens a new chapter in the concept of contracting, both questioning and revisiting many of its core concepts. It is a reliable resource on topical developments for everyone interested in digital technologies and contract law.

Waste-to-energy plants generate energy and they manage waste, notably municipal solid waste (MSW). Which way is best is still a matter of serious scientific research, both in a technological and in an economic-commercial sense, taking the environmental impact into account. The latter is a particular concern of the transition to a (more) circular economy, the major economic perspective launched by the European Union. The role of waste-to-energy processes in such a transition is still marred by legal problems and, even in 2017, considered a controversial subject. In this multi-disciplinary book, the state of waste-to-energy in the modern world is analyzed from the point of view of several disciplines: legal, socio- economic, commercial, and technological. [Subject: International Law, Environmental Law].
