The social security of the European Union (EU) has become of vital significance for persons living or working in a EU Member State. The creation of the European Economic Area and near accession of the candidate Members (East European countries) has further increased the relevance of this law. This book describes EU social security law, beginning with the rules relevant to migrant workers. Coverage includes Regulations 1408/71 and 574/72 and the case law of the Court of Justice of the EC. The book analyses the contributions of these judgments to the developments of coordination law and to the realisation of the objective of free movement of workers. In this respect the relation of the Regulation and the EC Treaty, which is shown in for instance the Kohll and Decker judgments, is analysed. Special attention is paid to the Proposal for Simplification and Modernisation of Regulation 1408/71. A second main part of EU social security law is the law on equal treatment of mean and women. The Court of Justice issued several main decisions, of which the Barber judgment is a well-known example. Since then, the case law has been further developed and this book helps the reader to understand the present state of affairs. A separate chapter analyses the combat against social exclusion of the EU and the instruments developed for this purpose. This is the completely revised and updated fourth edition of an authoritative book.
Dr. Ludwig Kr mer, born 1939, retired from the European Commission in August 2004. Dr. Kr mer joined the European Commission in 1972, where he started his career dealing with consumer protection issues in the Competition Directorate-General. He successfully combined his profession as an official of the European Commission with intensive writing and teaching activities. Dr. Kr mer is the author of numerous books, handbooks and articles on EC environmental law. He is an environmental law professor and regularly teaches at several European and non-European universities. In his teaching and speeches, he has inspired his audience and spurred many young people into working to protect the environment. On the occasion of his retirement from the Commission, a group of colleagues and friends decided to honor him with the production of this book, which assembles legal essays on a number of EC environmental law subjects.
This text represents a lecture on the overview of the steps taken by the European Union to develop a policy relating to disability and disabled people. Initiatives in the period prior to the adoption of the Amsterdam Treaty were characterized by limited action programs and a lack of binding policy measures. The inclusion in the EC Treaty of Article 13 which provides for the adoption of measures to address disability discrimination, the mobilization of an active disability movement, and the recognition of a new social model of disability have resulted in significant developments from the mid-1990s onward. The most important legal development has been the adoption of the Framework Employment Directive in 2000, which prohibits employment related discrimination on the grounds of disability and requires that reasonable accommodations be made for disabled people. The impact of this provision in a number of Member States is considered and the author reflects on possible ways forward for the EU disability policy.
The A Practical Approach series is the perfect partner for practice work. Each title focuses on one field of the law and provides a comprehensive overview of the subject together with clear, practical advice and tips on issues likely to arise in practice. The books are also an excellent resource for those new to the law, where the expert overview and clear layout promotes clarity and ease of understanding. A Practical Approach to Environmental Law provides comprehensive coverage of the full range of law and legislation relating to the environment, including; The Environmental Assessment of Plans and Programmes Regulations 2004; the Planning and Compulsory Purchase Act 2004; and the Environmental Information Regulations 2004, written in a clear and user-friendly style. To ensure accessibility and ease of reference, the book is organised into three sections, focussing in turn on; the principles of environmental protection such as the polluter pays principle, the precautionary principle, and sustainable development; substantive environmental law areas (such as noise, waste and water); and practice and procedure. The practice and procedure section covers remedies available under civil law, with practical advice on case management, injunctions and compensation, and costs. It also covers criminal law offences, procedures for prosecuting, and sentencing guidelines. Very much a practical guide, A Practical Approach to Environmental Law makes extensive use of cross-referencing, examples, checklists, case studies, and key reference documents, to assist the practitioner in quickly locating the material they need, whilst also providing valuable context for the student coming to this complex subject for the first time.
This second and fully revised edition brings together some of the most influential work on the theory and practice of contemporary EU environmental policy. Comprising five comprehensive parts, it includes in-depth case studies of contemporary policy issues such as climate change, genetically modified organisms and trans-Atlantic relations, as well as an assessment of how well the EU is responding to new challenges such as enlargement, environmental policy integration and sustainability. The book's aim is to look forward and ask whether the EU is prepared or even able to respond to the 'new' governance challenges posed by the perceived need to use 'new' policy instruments and processes to 'mainstream' environmental thinking in all EU policy sectors.
