"This major new textbook for students in European law uses a text, cases and materials approach to explore the law, politics, policy and practice of EU external relations, and navigates the complex questions at the interface of these areas. The subject is explored by explaining major constitutional principles, and elaborating upon them in policy-specific chapters ranging from common commercial policy and development policy over CFSP/CSDP and AFSJ to energy and enlargement policy. Specific attention is given to the relationship between European integration, the role of law, and the EU as an effective international actor. Designed for easy navigation, chapters include key objectives, summaries and textboxes, which frame key issues and guide the reader through the functioning of legal principles. Students gain a detailed understanding of the historical development, context and present functioning of EU external relations law in a highly politicised European and international environment"--

The Law of EU External Relations

Author: Pieter Jan Kuijper
Publisher: Oxford University Press
ISBN: 9780198757313
Release Date: 2015-11-05
Genre: European Union countries

The two years since publication of the first edition of The Law of EU External Relations: Cases, Materials, and Commentary on the EU as an International Actor have been characterized by the large amount of case law on the new provisions on external relations, which have found their way into the Lisbon Treaty. Moreover, there have been important changes in EU secondary law on external relations as a consequence of these changes to the Lisbon Treaty. In this second edition, new case law and legislative developments are critically discussed and analysed in this comprehensive collection of EU Treaty law. Combining chapters on the general basis of the Union's external action and its relation to international law, with chapters which further explore the law and practice of the EU in the specialized fields of external action, this book presents the law of EU external relations in a concise and accessible manner for students, practitioners, and academics in the field. Topics include the common commercial policy, development cooperation, cooperation with third countries, humanitarian aid, the enlargement and neighbourhood policies, the external environmental policy, and the common foreign and security policy. Carefully selected primary documents are accompanied with analytic commentary on the issues they raise and their significance for the overall structure of EU external relations law. The primary materials selected include many important legal documents that are hard to find elsewhere but give a vital insight into the operation of EU external relations law in practice.

The Lisbon Treaty

Author: Paul Craig
Publisher: OUP Oxford
ISBN: 9780191642814
Release Date: 2013-05-09
Genre: Law

The Lisbon Treaty reformed the foundations of the European Union and marked the culmination of a process of Treaty reform that began after the Treaty of Nice and spanned almost a decade. This book addresses the main innovations made by the new Treaty, examining its legal and political consequences in a reformed EU. The book is organized thematically around the principal issues that occupied those engaged in the reforms over the last decade. The chapters include analysis of the reform process itself and the political forces that shaped the relevant provisions of the Lisbon Treaty. The book contains detailed analysis of the relevant legal changes made by the Lisbon Treaty on each topic covered. This legal analysis is informed by broader literature from related disciplines, such as political science and international relations, since it is only by doing so that it is possible fully to understand the legal implications of the new provisions dealing with issues such as the inter-institutional division of power within the EU, the distribution of competence, the hierarchy of legal acts and the Charter of Rights. The book addresses the political and legal implications of the Treaty provisions, and the discussion is set against the background of the pre-existing legal and political regime, aiding a full understanding of the effect of the new rules contained in the Lisbon Treaty. This revised paperback edition includes a new chapter detailing the political reform process leading to the proposed Fiscal Union Treaty, and its potential legal implications.

It analyses, amongst others, the Common Commercial Policy, sanctions, the Common Foreign and Security Policy, and the Common Security and Defence Policy. This new edition is the most up-to-date work of its kind, examining both the law and practice in a wide range of external policies, placing the law in its political and economic context and exploring the links between the EU's external and internal actions.

Foreign Policy Objectives in European Constitutional Law

Author: Joris Larik
Publisher: Oxford University Press
ISBN: 9780191055973
Release Date: 2016-03-24
Genre: Law

Presenting the first comprehensive account of foreign policy objectives as a growing part of European constitutional law, Joris Larik confronts the trend of enshrining international ambitions in the highest laws of states and the European Union. Closely examining the provisions of foreign policy objectives, Larik differentiates their legal force and functions, situating them into the overall legal order of the state, the EU, and the composite 'European constitutional space'. He argues that the codification of foreign policy objectives suggests a progression in the evolution of the role of the constitution: from limiting public authority to guiding it towards certain goals, both at home and in the wider world. Advancing a comparative constitutional perspective for the study of EU external relations, this volume contributes a constitutional dimension to the 'normative power' debate in the study of EU foreign policy. Drawing on established national doctrines on constitutional objectives from Germany, France, and India, the book provides a common vocabulary for coming to terms with foreign policy objectives as legal norms across different jurisdictions. In the pluralist context and closely intertwined legal orders of the EU and its Member States, it shows how objectives help to channel the individual ambitions of the Member States through the Union framework towards a more coherent external action. Furthermore, the book connects its legal findings with the debate on the EU as an actor in international relations, exploring the role of these norms in inter-institutional struggles and processes of identity-shaping, legitimation, and socialization.

External Relations Law of the European Community

Author: Rass Holdgaard
Publisher: Kluwer Law International
ISBN: 9789041126047
Release Date: 2008
Genre: Law

External Relations Law of the European Community begins by noting two common characteristics of legal analyses in the field of EU external relations. First, most legal analyses assume that EC external relations law cannot be studied or applied without a constant awareness of the underlying political dynamics. Yet, the same analyses fail to explain how these 'dynamics' are to be understood, assessed and systematically applied. This pragmatic outlook reduces the importance and value of a self-reflective, rational and coherent legal language. Second, most legal analyses tend to focus only on narrow segments of the ECJ's case law, often taking as their points of departure individual cases or a group of topically related cases. This 'commentary' approach disregards the general inter-connectedness of legal structures and the recurring meaning configurations in the field. Against this backdrop, the author sets out to strengthen the legal language - both theoretically and practically - in the field of EC external relations: The first two parts of the book provide, with extensive references, an in-depth legal analysis of a wide range of topics pertaining to: the distribution between the EC and the Member States of norm-setting authority in their external relations, i.e. the rules that determine what the EC and the Member States can do (individually or together) in international relations; and the reception and application of rules of international law within the Community area, including the way in which international law enters Community law. In these parts of the book, the aim is to reconstruct the core areas of the Community's external relations law in a coherent and systematic manner. In the third part of the book, the author develops and applies a theoretical and methodological framework inspired by discourse analysis. This novel approach is used to identify and describe some of the most significant legal discourses in EC external relations. This part of the book provides - from an orthodox lawyer's perspective - an accessible account of a number of theoretical and analytical issues, including: the social construction of law and legal reasoning, the role of discourses in this construction; basic building blocks for a discourse analysis in law; and how to integrate discourse analysis and discourse analytical insights into an orthodox legal analysis with a view to bring out the restraints and possibilities in various strands of legal reasoning and legal meaning configurations. From a number of new perspectives, the study analyzes some of the most central and durable legal doctrines in EC external relations law, and shows how the construction of these doctrines affects the future development of this area of law. In this way, the book provides new knowledge about topics that continue to be at the heart of debates concerning the EU's external dimension.

Die Europ ische Union und Russland

Author: Alexey Mukhanov
Publisher: Peter Lang
ISBN: 3631608381
Release Date: 2010
Genre: Business & Economics

Russland ist die einzige handelspolitische Grossmacht, die noch nicht Mitglied der WTO ist. Aus diesem Grund vereinbarten die EU und Russland ein Partnerschaftsabkommen, das an das WTO-Recht angelehnt ist. Dadurch wurde die Anwendung der WTO-rechtlichen Freihandelsverpflichtungen auf die bilateralen Handelsbeziehungen ermoglicht. Problematisch ist dabei, dass das WTO-Recht auf WTO-fremde Handelsbeziehungen nicht ohne weiteres zur Anwendung kommen kann. Aus diesem Grund wird nach einem volkerrechtlichen Mechanismus gesucht, der einer solchen Anwendung den Weg ebnet. Der Autor sieht diesen Mechanismus in der Rechtsfigur der Entleihung."

The Evolution of EU Law

Publisher: Oxford University Press, USA
ISBN: 9780199592968
Release Date: 2011
Genre: Law

The European Union has undergone major changes in the last decade, including Treaty reform, and a significant expansion of activity in foreign and security policy, and justice and home affairs. In the first edition of this influential textbook, a team of leading lawyers and political scientists reflected upon the important developments in their chosen area over the time since the EC was formed. This new edition continues this analysis ten years on. Taking into account the social and political background, and without losing sight of the changes that came before, in each chapter the contributors analyze the principle themes and assess the legal and political forces that have shaped its development. Each author addresses a specific topic, event, or theme, from the European Court of Justice to Treaty reform; the enlargement of the EU to administrative law; the effect of EU law on culture to climate change. Together the chapters tell the story of the rapid development of EU law - its past, present, and future.

EU Administrative Law

Author: Paul P. Craig
Publisher: Oxford University Press, USA
ISBN: STANFORD:36105064133437
Release Date: 2006-11-10
Genre: Law

EU Administrative Law considers the ways in which the EU administers policy, the objective being to explicate, analyse and evaluate the modes of policy delivery, to assess the role of law therein and to draw conclusions about their relative efficacy. The approach throughout is contextual and inter-disciplinary. The focus in Part II shifts to 'Law and Administration' with analysis of the principles of judicial review as they have been developed by the Community courts. The chapters consider in-depth the principles of judicial review that are applied to control and structure EU administration and that of the Member States when acting in the sphere of EU law. The discussion takes full account of the legislative and political initiatives that are relevant to particular issues, as well as the contribution made by the Community courts.
