About this book

This Handbook comprehensively addresses the breadth of law encompassed by the EEA Agreement, which extends the European Union’s Single Market to three EFTA countries: Iceland, Liechtenstein and Norway.

The Handbook is first and foremost intended for practitioners and legal scholars, but its approachable style makes it readily accessible for students. The Handbook provides the reader with a thorough grounding in the EEA Agreement, detailing how secondary EU law becomes applicable in the EFTA pillar, and the roles played by the EFTA Surveillance Authority and the EFTA Court. It considers the EEA Agreement from the respective perspectives of the national authorities, courts, and the legal professions of Iceland, Liechtenstein and Norway. The book meticulously examines substantive EEA law, beginning with the general principles and the four freedoms, through competition law and State aid to such aspects as the precautionary principle, tax law and mutual administrative and legal assistance. Emphasis is placed on jurisprudence and especially that of the EFTA Court.

Each chapter has been written by a judge, noted practitioner or eminent academic in their respective fields and the book is divided into twelve parts:

  • Part I History and main features of the EEA Agreement
  • Part II Genesis of EEA Law
  • Part III Institutions and Procedure
  • Part IV National Authorities in the EFTA Pillar
  • Part V National Courts in the EFTA Pillar
  • Part VI The Practicing Bar in the EFTA Pillar
  • Part VII General Principles and Prohibition
  • Part VIII The Fundamental Freedoms
  • Part IX Competition Law and Related Matters
  • Part X Further Areas of Economic Law
  • Part XI Law of Natural and Economic Resources
  • Part XII Social Protection and Public Health
