About the book This book describes the unique process of legal evolution in the field of environmental law, which is denoted as constitutionalisation of the environmental protection in the EU legal order. This notion refers to the process of transformation of this particular area of law, which is reflected in its novel autonomous features and materialised through the normative and jurisprudential elevation of environmental objectives and principles. In the course of recent years, environmental protection has evolved from a sectoral policy to one of the core, transversal principles of the EU legal order. Grasped through the prism of the principles of integration and coherence, the environmental protection has become all-present and influential aspect of EU legislation, while at the same time reaching the status of a fundamental value underlying the constitutional dimension of the European Union as a community of law. The book examines this process on the basis of comparative legal analysis, the current practice of EU institutions, and the recent case-law of the Court of Justice of the EU. About the author Dr. Alicja Sikora is an EU law academic, lecturer and practitioner with more than 15 years of experience in EU litigation, as a Legal Secretary at the Court of Justice of the European Union and as a Legal Advisor to the Council of the European Union. Graduate of Jagiellonian University and Université de Reims, Ph.D. in Law (Jagiellonian University, Cracow), Member of the Polish Bar (Cracow), Alicja Sikora currently acts as a Legal Advisor to the Council of the EU, and is a lecturer at the Faculty of Law of the Jagiellonian University.

<![CDATA[ Europese Rechtspraak - Algemeen Deel #2 (Zojuist verschenen) ]]> Sat, 04 Apr 2020 06:03:08 +0200 Published: Europese Rechtspraak - Algemeen Deel #2 (Zojuist verschenen) door Onder redactie van dr. R.H. van Ooik en dr. T.A.J.A. Vandamme 

Europese Rechtspraak – Algemeen Deel #2 bevat de belangrijkste uitspraken van het Hof van Justitie van de Europese Unie over zowel het institutionele als het materiële Europese recht. Daarmee is de bundel in de eerste plaats bedoeld om te worden gebruikt in het hoger onderwijs (Bachelor of Master). Deze arrestenbundel volgt daarbij de structuur van het handboek Europees Recht - Algemeen Deel (vijfde druk). De samenhang tussen de bundel en dit handboek zit met name in de keuze van arresten: de meeste uitspraken in deze bundel zijn ook, thematisch en in dezelfde volgorde, gebruikt in Europees Recht - Algemeen Deel. Bovendien is, net als in het handboek, de interactie tussen het EU-recht en het Nederlandse recht een belangrijke pijler. Derhalve zijn ook uitspraken opgenomen van Nederlandse rechters waarin EU-recht een centrale rol speelt. Voor onderwijsdoeleinden, en voor groter leesgemak, zijn de opgenomen uitspraken bewerkt. Ze zijn voorzien van een korte inleidende tekst en zijn, waar mogelijk, ingekort. Van arresten van vóór de inwerkingtreding van het Verdrag van Lissabon (op 1 december 2009) zijn naast de oudere verdragsartikelen de huidige, corresponderende, artikelen uit het Verdrag betreffende de Europese Unie (VEU) of het Verdrag betreffende de Werking van de Europese Unie (VWEU) ingevoegd. Bij zeer oude arresten, die in hun originele versie geen nummering van rechtsoverwegingen hadden, is bovendien een eigen nummering toegevoegd. Tot slot bevat deze bundel een numeriek én een alfabetisch register van de behandelde uitspraken. De samenstellers van deze bundel, dr. R.H. van Ooik en dr. T.A.J.A. Vandamme, zijn werkzaam aan de Faculteit der Rechtsgeleerdheid, Universiteit van Amsterdam.

Dit boek is geschreven voor studenten en andere belangstellenden die indringend willen kennismaken met de grote leerstukken van het Europese recht. Het is geen naslagwerk en streeft niet naar uitputtende behandeling, maar naar kennis en begrip van hoofdzaken in hun verband. Het boek benut de historische, de politieke en de maatschappelijke achtergrond van het Europese recht voor zover deze bijdragen aan overzicht en inzicht. Europees recht heeft een centrale plaats in vrijwel elk aspect van de moderne Nederlandse rechtsontwikkeling. Het is een bruisend rechtsgebied dat op het eerste gezicht almaar groter en ingewikkelder wordt. Bij nader inzien vindt men krachtige elementen van eenvoud in zijn grote thema's en algemene leerstukken.Deze zesde druk is verrijkt met de laatste ontwikkelingen in wetgeving, rechtspraak en praktijk, en met nieuwe inzichten. De redactie van deze editie van Europees Recht – Algemeen Deel is, net als bij de vorige druk, in handen van Tom Eijsbouts (emeritus hoogleraar Europees Constitutioneel recht en zijn Geschiedenis, Universiteit van Amsterdam), Jan Jans (hoogleraar Bestuursrecht, Rijksuniversiteit Groningen), Linda Senden (hoogleraar Europees recht, Universiteit Utrecht) en Sacha Prechal (rechter Hof van Justitie EU).

<![CDATA[ Membership of the European Council in a Constitutional and Historical Perspective ]]> Sat, 04 Apr 2020 05:45:16 +0200 Published: Membership of the European Council in a Constitutional and Historical Perspective door Dr. David Nederlof 

Heads of state or government of the member states of the European Union have a dual role: they are and remain holders of domestic executive offi ces, but at the same time members of the European Council – the EU institution that is the centre of political authority within the Union. This membership, approached here from a constitutional and historical perspective, is autonomous to the extent that it is attributed to the heads of state or government and substantively determined by the EU’s constitution. It is a key part of the EU structure and fundamental for comprehending the executive branches of the Union and of the member states as well as their relationship. The present study analyses the force of the dualitythat membership entails for the accumulation of authority within the European Council. It investigates for a number of member states – The Netherlands, Belgium and Germany – whether and how European Council membership has become compatible with and has affected domestic constitutional positions, domestic executive institutions and systems at large. It contributes to the understanding of the relation between national executives and the Union. While this relation is usually considered as one-dimensional, this study shows that the situation is more complex and interesting. About the authorDavid Nederlof is lecturer in EU law and member of the Research Group Changing Role of Europe at The Hague University of Applied Sciences. This book is the result of the Ph.D. research project that he conducted at the Law Faculty of the University of Amsterdam.

The Maastricht Collection comprises a broad selection of legal instruments and provisions that have proven to be particularly relevant and useful to students and practitioners of international, European, and comparative law. The compilation is based on the long-standing expertise in teaching and researching European, international, and comparative national law at Maastricht University’s Faculty of Law. It includes codes and statutory legislation from France, Germany, the Netherlands, and the United Kingdom, international treaties and instruments of international organisations, as well as the Treaties and selected secondary legal instruments of the European Union. The provisions contained in The Maastricht Collection are reproduced in the original English or in the authentic English version, where applicable, or they are freshly translated under critical editorship. Many existing translations of written law, including officious translations available on government websites, are significantly out of date and not sufficiently faithful to the original. They often seek to turn old-fashioned or ambiguous original texts into modern and elegant English. Or, instead of translating, they seek to explain how certain terms or formulations are interpreted in practice. The translations contained in The Maastricht Collection remain true to the content, style, and syntax of the original as far as possible, allowing the reader to appreciate not only the substance but also the authentic form of legal sources. Next to a comprehensive update and revision of all the instruments contained in The Maastricht Collection, this sixth edition also contains a number of useful additions, such as legislation relating to Brexit and statutory legislation on criminal procedure. With these updates and additions, The Maastricht Collection now presents itself as an even more comprehensive resource for students of European, international, and comparative law.

<![CDATA[ Extradition Law and Practice (Just published!) ]]> Sat, 04 Apr 2020 05:55:58 +0200 Published: Extradition Law and Practice (Just published!) door Stefano Maffei  

Although international extradition is a neglected subject in the curriculum of legal studies all over the world, the surrender of persons sought through extradition continues to be the most significant form of mutual assistance in criminal matters between sovereign states. This book provides a concise and clear description of extradition law and procedure based on a number of key principles and concepts (double criminality, rule of speciality, assurances) drawn from domestic extradition statutes, bilateral and multilateral treaties. It then outlines 35 notable extradition cases, in which the persons sought fought against the extradition requests by invoking certain grounds of refusal (human rights violations, unfairness of trial in the requesting country, passage of time, etc). For each of these cases, an outline of the facts, the outcome of the case and the legal arguments of the parties is provided. The book is ideal for legal practitioners who wish to familiarise with the law and practice of extradition litigation around the world and to learn about the best available strategies to effectively assist clients in extradition cases. About the authorStefano Maffei is a lecturer in Criminal procedure at the University of Parma (Italy). A former Fulbright Scholar at Temple Law School (Philadelphia, USA), Dr. Maffei holds a doctorate from Oxford University and authored numerous publications in the area of comparative procedure and evidence. Dr Maffei has served on several occasions as an expert witness in international extradition cases.

This concise book is mainly intended to be used as an introduction to the rules of private international law belonging to the legal system of the European Union. It provides legal practitioners with an overview of this highly complex field of law and can serve as an introductory textbook in elective undergraduate courses and master programs offered today by many law schools both to their own students and to exchange students from other countries. The book will hopefully also be useful as a spring-board towards more profound studies of statutory texts, case law and legal literature.

Het mededingingsrecht is niet meer weg te denken uit onze economie en de maatschappij in het algemeen. Elke dag wordt wel ergens staatssteun uitgekeerd, een fusie aangemeld, een kartel opgerold of nagedacht over de vraag of er meer of minder concurrentie moet plaatsvinden in een bepaalde sector. Al deze vragen spelen in een weinig toegankelijk rechtsgebied waarin de beoefenaar een gedegen kennis van het recht moet combineren met economische, technische en politieke inzichten. Dit boek biedt een inleiding op de fascinerende wereld van het mededingingsrecht. Deze derde druk is volledig bijgewerkt en bevat de meest recente jurisprudentie en handhavingsactiviteit van de Commissie en ACM. Waar mogelijk zijn de gevolgen van Brexit verwerkt en is de rechtsvergelijkende component vergroot. Op die manier beoogt dit boek niet alleen bij te dragen aan een gedegen kennis van het (Europees) mededingingsrecht, maar ook aan te zetten tot kritische reflectie en eigen meningsvorming. Om de lezer hiermee te helpen begint elk hoofdstuk met een kort abstract, een weergave van de kennis die kan worden opgedaan en de kritische reflectie waartoe wordt aangezet. Hiermee is voor de lezer nog duidelijker welke kennis zij of hij kan opdoen en welke rol van haar of hem wordt verwacht in het vormgeven van het mededingingsrecht van de toekomst. Over de auteurHans Vedder is als hoogleraar economisch ordeningsrecht verbonden aan de Rijksuniversiteit Groningen en is Raadsheer-plaatsvervanger bij het Gerechtshof Leeuwarden. Jochen Appeldoorn was als universitair docent Europees recht verbonden aan de Rijksuniversiteit Groningen.

<![CDATA[ Integrated Environmental Permitting ]]> Sat, 04 Apr 2020 05:45:16 +0200 Published: Integrated Environmental Permitting door H.D. Tolsma 

About the bookImproving the quality of environmental law is high on the agenda of both the European Union and its Member States. In the Netherlands, there has been a series of changes of law in order to simplify and improve the complex and fragmented system of environmental law. However, the improvement of sectoral legislation has not led to the desired result. The Dutch legislature now considers a fundamental reform of environmental law necessary. One of the main goals is to achieve a coherent approach towards the physical environment in policy, decision-making and regulations. The Environment and Planning Act brings together 26 acts and about 120 governmental decrees in the area of spatiality and planning, infrastructure, nature and water, in order to create a single act for the physical environment. This book focuses on one of the key instruments of environmental law, the environmental permit. The integration of sectoral environmental permit systems is a way to simplify and speed up decision-making procedures for the authorisation of activities affecting the physical environment. The goal is to introduce a fully integrated environmental permit system. This means not only procedural integration of sectoral permitting systems but also substantive integration of the various assessment criteria. This concept of integrated environmental permitting has generated a great deal of discussion in the Netherlands. In the context of this research, an overview will be given of developments in the field of integrated environmental permitting in Germany, Belgium and the Netherlands. Developments in EU environmental law and the new Dutch Environment and Planning Act are also included. About the author Hanna Tolsma is Assistant Professor (lecturer in public law and environmental law) at the Department of Constitutional Law, Administrative Law and Public Administration of the University of Groningen (h.d.tolsma@rug.nl). She received her PhD in 2008 on a thesis concerning legal aspects of the use of mediation by administrative authorities during the decision-making process. This book is related to her postdoc research project entitled “Integrated environmental permitting: an exploration of the legal possibilities” sponsored by the Netherlands Organisation for Scientific Research (NWO). Her publications mainly relate to general administrative law and environmental law.

<![CDATA[ The Law and Policy of International Trade in Electricity ]]> Sat, 04 Apr 2020 05:45:16 +0200 Published: The Law and Policy of International Trade in Electricity door Karolis Gudas 

The book examines the legal guarantees provided under the European Union (EU) and the World Trade Organization (WTO) rules for the development of electricity transmission systems, either by constructing new transmission lines or by increasing transmission capacity. In the context of analysis of trade rules, the book makes the argument that, if long-distance trade in electricity remains a feasible option, the development of electricity transmission projects must be made subject to economic, technological and environmental criteria. It is dealt with in light of specific challenges of electricity trade related to its dependence on networks, storage and balancing. The book offers insights into the scope of the WTO and the EU related to access to and the development of cross-border electricity infrastructure development, connection and integration of abundant renewable energies into the electricity systems. It has criticized the EU’s regulations in terms of a lack of technological neutrality, as well as the WTO system in terms of lack of sector-tailored regulations that are necessary to achieve the objectives of the WTO to facilitate trade and transit. The regulatory environment for the development of cross-border electricity transmission projects has been examined based on identified obstacles from the analysis of the major multinational electricity systems in the world. AuthorDr Karolis Gudas holds PhD degree from the World Trade Institute, University of Bern. At present he is the General Counsel of the project of national significance to Lithuania – Vilnius CHP, a Lecturer in Energy Law at Vilnius University and Center Fellow at the Cambridge Centre for Environment, Energy and Natural Resource Governance, University of Cambridge.
