About The Outer Limits of European Union Law

A commonly expressed view is that the citizens and the Member States are destined to be overcome by the European Union. There is a sense that the Union of today is not what was intended to be created or acceded to by the Member States or its citizens. The Outer Limits of European Union Law brings together a diverse group of legal scholars to consider aspects of EU substantive, constitutional and procedural law in a manner highlighting the many senses in which the European Union is or can be limited and so demonstrating that the fear of being overcome is largely a false fear. By exploring the mechanisms and devices used to limit the European Union, the contributors also reveal not only the strengths of the various limits, but also and more crucially the weakness of the limits , thereby demonstrating that the prospect of being overcome may be a genuine risk to be guarded against. By considering general themes (eg legitimacy) and core subject areas (eg policing, free movement of goods, remedies) the book reveals the various techniques used by the Court of Justice, Community institutions and Member States to define and modify the outer limits of the European Union and European Union Law.

“Written by a raft of academics specialising in European law, this book defines the outer limits of European Union Law and therefore of the EU itself.” –  Agence Europe, No. 9899/824

“its readership deserves to be wide and multi-disciplinary.

An interesting and diverse collection around a worthy and stimulating topic.

” –  Maria Fletcher, European Union Studies Association, EUSA Review

“It is impossible to do justice to such a fine collection in a short review.

This collection … raises a whole host of contemporary issues pertaining to the boundaries of EU law and is essential reading for scholars and jurists alike.

” –  Declan J. Walsh, Journal of Common Market Studies, Volume 7, Issue 14
