EU Law in the Member States

Editors: Jeremias Prassl (Oxford) and Michal Bobek (Bruges)

Located at the cross-section between EU law, comparative law and socio-legal studies, EU Law in the Member States explores the interaction of EU law and national legal systems by analysing comparative evidence of the impact landmark EU measures—from CJEU decisions and secondary legislation to soft-law—have had across different Member States. The nature and operation of EU law has traditionally been analysed in a highly ‘centralised’ way, through the lenses of Brussels and Luxembourg, and in terms of the Treaty and its interpretation by the Court of Justice. Beneath this orthodoxy, however, lies the complex world of the genuine life of EU law in the Member States. Judicial and administrative practices across the Union’s 28 Member States considerably qualify and sometimes even challenge the long-standing assumption that doctrines such as the direct effect and supremacy of EU law ensure a uniform and effective application of its provisions.

Each volume brings together leading academics, national experts and practitioners in order to draw conclusions both for EU law generally and the specific area in question on the basis of Member State reports and broader horizontal papers, and will be of interest to generalist EU lawyers and specialists in each field across the Member States. Academic audiences will benefit from the tight integration of national case studies and doctrinal analysis, whilst practitioners and policy makers will find systematically presented comparative evidence and commentary.
