A systematic overview is given of the impact of norms enacted by the most prominent universal and regional international organisations on the EU legal order. This allows for an easy comparative analysis
The book combines academic views with experiences of practitioners. Both groups, high-level experts have committed to the book While the relationship between international and EU law as such is a popular academic theme, the impact on the EU legal order of norms, principles and practices of other international organisations has never before been studied in a similar comprehensive fashion
This volume compiles analyses of both a conceptual and practical nature
The European Union’s legal order is traditionally seen as largely autonomous within the global legal system. At the same time, the EU is an important player in the global governance network and has revealed its dependence on international law and international normative processes. The strong and explicit link between the EU and a large number of other international organisations raises questions concerning the impact of decisions taken by those organisations and of international agreements concluded with those organisations on the autonomy of the EU legal order. While the relationship between international and EU law as such is a popular academic theme, the increasing influence of norms enacted by international organisations and more loosely structured bodies on the shaping of the EU and its legal order has never before been studied in a similar comprehensive fashion.
In this book, prominent academics and leading practitioners explore a wide variety of legal issues pertaining to the influence of the most prominent universal and regional international organisations and bodies on the EU’s legal order, its institutional design and operational experiences. As such, this book will be of much value to academics, policy makers, civil servants, lawyers and judges with an interest in the interaction of international law and EU law, as well as the relations between the European Union and other international organisations.
