EU economic law in a time of crisis, edited by Harri Kalimo, Professor, Institute for European Studies (IES), Vrije Universiteit Brussel, Belgium, Max S. Jansson, Researcher, Institute for European Studies (IES), Vrije Universiteit Brussel, Belgium

How has the EU's economic crisis affected the development of economic law in the Union? This book contributes to the debate by examining EU economic law from a contextual and policy-oriented perspective. - The expert authors explore areas such as the EMU and the internal market, and emphasize the important fields of public procurement, taxation, and intellectual property rights. The investigation proceeds along themes such as harmonization, institutional interplay, non-economic values, and international actions. The authors conclude that, during the crisis, the attention of the Barroso Commission focused quite narrowly on the most urgent problems, failing to consider longer-term issues to spark off bold policy endeavours, and break inter-institutional blockages
