Compared to the US, European data and privacy protection rules seem Draconian. The European rules apply to any enterprise doing business in the EU. The new rules are far more stringent than the last set. This book is a quick guide to the directives for companies, particularly US, that have to comply with them. Where US organizations and businesses who collect or receive EU personal data fail to comply with the rule, the bottom line can suffer from very significant official fines and penalties, as well as from users, customers or representative bodies to pursuing litigation. This guide is essential for all US enterprises who directly or indirectly deal with EU personal data.

  • Sanctioning excessive energy prices as abuse of dominance : are the EU Commission and the National Competition Authorities on the same frequence? / Rozeta Karova and Marco Botta.
Granting rebates to a customer or refusing to supply a competitor are examples of ordinary commercial practices, which become `abusive' under Article 102 of the Treaty on the Functioning of the EU (TFEU) when carried out by `dominant' firms. This topical book provides an up-to-date account of the emerging trends in the enforcement and interpretation of this provision at both the EU and national level. Employing a range of case studies, this illuminating book adds a cross-country perspective to the growing debate surrounding the scope of application of Article 102 of the TFEU; a debate largely caused by its ambiguous wording. Besides analysing the case law of the EU Courts and EU Commission that determine what conduct falls in the `abuse' box, a number of chapters examine the active contribution of national courts and competition authorities in the ongoing process of shaping the meaning of this legal provision. Astute and discerning, this book will appeal to academics and researchers in the areas of EU competition law and policy. Its practical examples will also prove beneficial to practitioners and national competition authorities.

  • Introduction: EU pre-border controls and protection seeker flows
  • Chronology and conceptualisation of "integrated border management" : the "embodied border" paradigm
  • The Schengen Borders Code : securitised admission criteria as the centrepiece of "integrated border management" : instilling ambiguity
  • Common visa policy : bordering from abroad : applying admission criteria before departure
  • Carrier sanctions and ILOs : anticipated enforcement of visa requirements through "imperfect delegation" : diverting flows, entrenching unsafety
  • Frontex : joint maritime interdiction of undifferentiated flows : operationalising "pre-emptive controls"
  • The fundamental rights acquis : an 'integrated approach" to interpretation : the "aggregate standards" model
  • EU non-refoulement : (the irrelevance of) territory and pre-border controls
  • The right to asylum : an individual entitlement to (access) international protection
  • Remedies and procedural guarantees (and the unavoidability of access to territory)
  • Conclusions: Taking EU refugee rights seriously.
Europe is currently experiencing a "refugee crisis", demonstrated by millions of displaced people unseen since World War II. This book examines the interface between the EU's response to irregular flows, in particular the main extraterritorial border and migration controls taken by the Member States, and the rights asylum seekers acquire from EU law. "Remote control" techniques, such as the imposition of visas, fines on carriers transporting unsatisfactorily documented third-country nationals, and interception at sea are investigated in detail in a bid to assess the impact these measures have on access to asylum in the EU. The book also thoroughly analyses the rights recognised by the EU Charter of Fundamental Rights to persons in need of international protection, inclusive of the principle of non-refoulement, the right to leave any country including one's own, the right to asylum, and the right to remedies and effective judicial protection. The fundamental focus of the book is the relationship between the aforementioned border and migration controls and the rights of asylum seekers and, most importantly, how these rights (should) limit the scope of such measures and the ways in which they are implemented. The ultimate goal is to conclude whether the current series of extraterritorial mechanisms of pre-entry vetting is compatible in EU law with the EU rights of forced migrants.-- From the publisher.

  • The perils of differentiated integration in the field of asylum / Nadine El-Enany
  • Between flexibility and disintegration in EU criminal law / Ester Herlin-Karnell
  • Foreign policy between opt-outs and closer cooperation / Panos Koutrakos.
Differentiation was at first not perceived as a threat to the European project, but rather as a tool to promote further integration. Today, more EU policies than ever are marked by concentric circles of integration and a lack of uniform application. As the EU faces increasingly existential challenges, this timely book considers whether the proliferation of mechanisms of flexibility has contributed to this newly fragile state or whether, to the contrary, differentiation has been fundamental to integration despite the heterogeneity of national interests and priorities. Written by emerging and established experts in the field, the chapters examine the present and future of differentiation in EU law. Part I covers general institutional aspects, with contributors examining the nature and characteristics of the various institutional and extra-institutional forms of differentiation. Part II takes a policy-oriented perspective, focussing on areas of EU law and policy in which differentiated integration is prevalent or particularly intriguing. This includes Economic and Monetary Union, the internal market, justice and home affairs, and foreign policy. Differentiated integration is now a defining feature of the EU polity, with the potential to impact almost every facet of EU regulation. This book will be essential reading for students and academics in EU law or anyone interested in the future of EU integration.

  • The revised lis pendens rules in the Brussels Ibis regulation / Christian Heinze and Björn Steinrötter
  • The party autonomy paradigm : European and global developments on choice of forum / Xandra Kramer and Erlis Themeli
  • Procedural position of a 'weaker party' in the regulation Brussels Ibis / Vesna Lazić
  • The enforcement of monetary final judgments under the Brussels Ibis regulation (a critical assessment) / Marta Requejo Isidro
  • Provisional and protective measures in the European civil procedure of the Brussels I system / Ilaria Pretelli
  • Brussels Ibis in relation to other instruments on the global level / Vesna Lazić and Steven Stuij.
This book focuses on major amendments introduced in the Brussels I regulatory framework. The contributions scrutenise the changes introduced in the Brussels Ibis Regulation, a legal instrument that presents a core of the unification of private international law rules on the European Union level. It is one of the first publications addressing all the changes in the Brussels I regulatory scheme, which takes into consideration relevant CJEU case law up to July 2016. The texts, written by legal scholars who have published extensively in the field of private international law and international civil procedure, will add to the development of EU private international law. In addition, the authors' critical analysis may open further discussions on the topic and so benefit a consistent and harmonised application of the Regulation. In this respect the book takes a different approach than the commentaries which have so far been published. It is primarily meant for legal academics in private international law and practitioners who are regularly engaged in cross-border civil proceedings. It may also be of added value to advanced students and to those with a particular interest in the subject of international litigation and more generally in the area of dispute resolution. Vesna Lazic is a Senior Researcher at the T.M.C. Asser Instituut, an Associate Professor of Private Law at Utrecht University and Professor of European Civil Procedure at the University of Rijeka. Steven Stuij is an expert in Private International Law and an external Ph.D. candidate at Erasmus School of Law, Rotterdam.

  • Part 1. What is cannabis and what are countries' obligations to control it?
  • Part 2. What do the laws and associated guidelines say?
  • Part 3. What happens to cannabis offenders in practice?
  • Part 4. Where is cannabis legislation going?
"At a time of increased debate on the laws controlling the use of cannabis in the European Union, this report answers some of the questions most often asked about cannabis legislation. Using a question and answer format, basic definitions and the obligations of countries under international law are set out in a section on 'What is cannabis and what are countries' obligations to control it?' Two following sections examine the links and disparities between the content of the laws and their guidelines on the one hand and the actual implementation of the laws on the other. The final question and answer section considers whether changes in law have affected cannabis use and how much public support for legal change exists, as it looks at the future direction of cannabis legislation in Europe." --Provided by publisher.

  • Immigration facts and immigration governance in the case studies

  • Researchers and students
  • Family life
  • Permanent residence permits
  • The (legal) value of integration measures.
In this work Moritz Jesse analyses the legal framework within which inclusion of immigrants into the receiving societies can take place. The inclusion of immigrants cannot be enforced by law. However, legislation must provide the room within which integration can take place legally. By studying residence titles, procedures and other sources in a comparative and critical way, Jesse wants to discover whether the legal potential for integration in the EU and the three Member States is sufficient for the inclusion of immigrants.

"[This book is a synthesis of the] collective dismissal in EU member states. When business imperatives require large enterprises to re-organize, involving a reduction in staff that is legally characterized as a collective dismissal, EU directives and laws across Europe mandate specific procedures to support workers who have been made redundant, and allow for sanctions where regulatory or judicial scrutiny uncovers violations. It is thus essential that a clearly defined framework of the laws and jurisprudence in force in each member state be provided for businesses and their counsel to ensure compliance and avoid sanctions."-- Provided by publisher.

This book specifically covers issues regarding jurisdiction and the recognition andenforcement of judgments in cross-border mass disputes relating to financial services.Collective redress mechanisms, legal mechanisms which can be used to resolve mass disputescollectively, are growing more important. Due to the global increase in cross-bordertrade and financial transactions, the number of cross-border mass disputes has increased.In the EU, several prototypes of collective redress mechanism exist that can be used toresolve mass disputes and, aside from the EU's recommendation on the drafting oflaws relating to collective redress, a reevaluation of the Brussels Regulation has alsotaken place as on 10 January 2015 the Brussels I-bis Regulation replaced the old BrusselsRegulation dating from 2000.In spite of a minor reference to collective redress in the Commission proposal, BrusselsI-bis does not contain any provision relating to collective redress. As a result, many questionsregarding cross-border mass disputes and the relevant private international law issues remainunanswered and unresolved. This book sets out to describe the most important prototypesby referring to actual collective redress mechanisms.In addition, it also sets out how parties to such mass disputes can confer jurisdiction to courtsin the EU and what the various pitfalls are. Moreover, the rules concerning the recognitionand enforcement of judgments originating from a collective procedure are listed. Ascross-border collective redress mechanisms and the rules of private international law to beused in such a context are still being developed, the goals of private international law andthe goals of the referred collective redress mechanisms are analysed to provide an insightinto how these sets of rules should and could be employed.This book is primarily aimed at researchers, practitioners and lawmakers actively involvedin and/or professionally interested in the field of private international law and collectiveredress mechanisms and should prove very useful in providing them with a greater in-depthunderstanding of the issues at hand.Thijs Bosters is a law clerk at the Dutch Supreme Court. Prior to his work at the SupremeCourt, he was an attorney-at-law with NautaDutilh in The Netherlands, where he workedin the Litigation & Arbitration department.

Across the member states of the Council of Europe, both the blocking and removal of online material are frequently treated in a similar way. However, the existence or the lack of a legislative framework specifically targeted to the internet, and the specificities of national regulatory "models" translate in different practices and can be a challenge for the states concerned. The Council of Europe commissioned to the Swiss Institute of Comparative Law a comparative study in respect of filtering, blocking and take-down of illegal content on the internet in the 47 member states of the Organisation. This study describes and assesses the legal framework but also the relevant case-law and practice in the field. It comprises a comparative analysis -- which is the subject of this publication -- and country reports (available on the website: www.coe.int/freedomofexpression).

  • Copyright rewind : precedents for compensation systems
  • Alternative compensation systems : taxonomy of legalisation proposals
  • Between rights and limitations : mapping the space for the legalisation of the online use of copyright works
  • Copyright reform : admissibility of legalisation under the three step test and the objectives of EU copyright law
  • Summary and conclusions : towards access and remuneration.
"[This book] examines pragmatic legal solutions that enable Internet users to access works in the digital environment by exploring the flexibilities in EU copyright law in search of a consistent regulation of non-commercial online use. In addition to proving virtually impossible, online enforcement of copyright may be undesirable because it risks encroaching upon fundamental rights and freedoms. However, the problem remains that creators are often not fairly remunerated for the online use of their works. This book addresses the need for legalisation schemes that favour remunerated access over exclusivity and enforcement for large-scale online use by individuals, while assuring remuneration to rights holders and promoting the development of the information society."-- Publisher's website.

The Council of Europe, of which all European States are members, plays a pivotal role in the promotion and protection of human rights, democracy, and the rule of law in Europe. Bringing together specialist scholars and practitioners, The Council of Europe: Its Laws and Policies offers profound insights into the functioning of the organization. The organization's primary and secondary law, its institutional structure, and its far-reaching fields of activities are comprehensively and systematically analysed. This volume investigates the impact of the Council's activities within the national legal systems of the Member States and the dense web of relationships between the Council of Europe and other international organisations. An important reference work on one of the most influential organizations in Europe, the book concludes that the Council of Europe has played a considerable role in the constitutionalization process of regional public international law.

  • Courts, privacy and data protection in Spain : experiencing data protection's dominance / Gloria González Fuster.
Through critical analysis of case law in European and national courts, this book reveals the significant role courts play in the protection of privacy and personal data within the new technological environment. It addresses the pressing question from a public who are increasingly aware of their privacy rights in a world of continual technological advances - namely, what can I do if my data privacy rights are breached? The expert contributors examine the jurisprudence of the Court of Justice of the European Union, the case law of the European Court of Human Rights and decisions by national courts. Together, they explore how judiciaries balance privacy and data protection rights against other interests and investigate the influence European courts have on national judges. This book also probes the ways in which courts deal with strategic litigation aimed at law and policy reform and, in doing so, sheds light on the role and ability of courts to safeguard privacy and data protection rights. This topical resource will benefit both academics and students of law, particularly those interested in the protection of fundamental rights and freedoms. Both policy makers and legal professionals alike will benefit from the insight into the judicial decision-making activities concerning data protection.

Countries are increasingly introducing data localization laws and data export restrictions, threatening digital globalization and inhibiting cloud computing's adoption despite its acknowledged benefits. Through a cloud computing lens, this multi-disciplinary book examines the personal data transfers restriction under the EU Data Protection Directive (including the EU-US Privacy Shield and General Data Protection Regulation). It covers historical objectives and practical problems, showing why the focus should move from physical data location to effective jurisdiction over those controlling access to intelligible data and control of access to data through security measures. The book further discusses data localization laws' failure to solve concerns regarding the topical and contentious issue of mass state surveillance. Its arguments are also relevant to other data localization laws, cross-border transfers of non personal data and transfers not involving cloud computing. Comprehensive yet accessible, this book is of great value to academics in law, policy, computer science and technology. It is also highly relevant to cloud computing/technology organisations and other businesses in the EU and beyond, data privacy professionals, policymakers and regulators.
