Samenvatting

Dit is een Engelse vertaling en geheel geüpdatete versie van het boek Recht van de Europese Unie. Het recht van de Europese Unie mag zich in een toenemende belangstelling verheugen en is, gelet op het belang voor zowel de wetenschap als de praktijk, een verplicht onderdeel van de meeste juridische opleidingen.

Dit studieboek is in eerste instantie bestemd voor studenten die in de bachelor- of masterfase van hun opleiding het Europese recht bestuderen. Daarnaast is het, door zijn diepgang en de vele verwijzingen, zeer bruikbaar voor de praktijk en de rechtswetenschap.

De hoofdtekst van het boek bestaat uit een omschrijving van de stand van zaken van het recht van de Europese Unie. Daarnaast bevat het boek meer gedetailleerde informatie en een aantal (actuele) juridische discussies. Met dit laatste wordt beoogd de studenten zelf kritisch over dit rechtsgebied te laten nadenken.
