Content Type

The Substantive Law of the EU by Catherine Barnard is the resource for anyone wishing to gain a thorough grasp of the four freedoms in EU law. An introductory chapter outlines the background to EU law in this area: the role of free trade theory, the evolution and expansion of the internal market and the fundamental principles underpinning this process. The following sections then provide a detailed examination of the four freedoms - goods, persons, services, and capital - which make up the core of EU law.

The fully revised and updated third edition addresses the significant recent developments in EU legislation including expanded coverage of the free movement of services and more detailed consideration of the derogations and limitations to the four freedoms. Regular case studies help to unlock the subtleties of EU law in operation and frequent diagrams and flow charts clarify the more complex areas of substantive law.
