Good Governance and the European Union

The White Paper of the Commission on European Governance focussed attention on the notion of good governance in the European Union. One of the possible criticisms on this White Paper is that it does not define the concept in any meaningful way. At the same time the Commission seems to try to re-invent the wheel without taking experiences from national and international legal systems into account. This book will approach the notion of good governance from three different angles. First it establishes whether it is a meaningful notion at all by taking a closer look at the parameters of good governance. What do we mean by the concept and is it appropriate to apply it in the current discussion on EU governance? What contribution is made in terms of deepening the discussion on each of the substantive criteria it enumerates? And, last but not least, what can we learn from the application of the concept in the national and international legal orders? Secondly, the authors look at the institutional translation of the criteria of good governance. Does the concept contribute to our thinking on issues such as the institutional balance and and the horizontal and vertical delegation of powers as well as an (extra-) institutional role for civil society and for national actors? In other words: in what way could or should the notion of good governance help shape the future institutional configuration of the Union. In a third dimension, the concept may be analysed in relation to a number of substantive issues. Does the concept play a role in foreign, security and defence policy, in police and judicial cooperation or in economic or environmental law? And if so, how is it taken into account in these areas?

The leading textbook on the four freedoms, popular with students and academics alike. This authoritative text offers a unique balance of comprehensive, detailed coverage in a concise and readable style, providing a critical and thorough analysis of the key principles of the substantive law of the EU. An introductory chapter provides valuable context on the governance of the internal market, its evolution, and the theories behind its key principles. Each of the freedoms is then dealt with in turn, covering goods, persons, services, and capital, before moving on to discuss harmonization, the regulation of the internal market, and its future. Additional useful detail is captured in footnotes, while directed further reading lists provide support for independent study and research. This thorough coverage is fully supported by engaging case studies throughout the book which place the law in context, helping you to understand the complexities of the subject and exploring the practical implications of EU law. Diagrams, flowcharts, and tables offer further detail and illustrate key ideas and processes in an easily accessible format, while chapter overviews, chapter content lists, and a clear structure ensure readers remain on track and can find information quickly.

Competition Contracts and Electricity Markets

  • Release Date: 2011
  • Number of pages: 312
  • Author: Jean-Michel Glachant
  • Publisher: Edward Elgar Publishing



This book fills a gap in the existing literature by dealing with several issues linked to long-term contracts and the efficiency of electricity markets. These include the impact of long-term contracts and vertical integration on effective competition, generation investment in risky markets, and the challenges for competition policy principles. On the one hand, long-term contracts may contribute to lasting generation capability by allowing for a more efficient allocation of risk. On the other hand, they can create conditions for imperfect competition and thus impair short-term efficiency. The contributors – prominent academics and policy experts with inter-disciplinary perspectives – develop fresh theoretical and practical insights on this important concern for current electricity markets. This highly accessible book will strongly appeal to both academic and professional audiences including scholars of industrial, organizational and public sector economics, and competition and antitrust law. It will also be of value to regulatory and antitrust authorities, governmental policymakers, and consultants in electricity law and economics.

The practice of regulatory impact assessment has long needed a critical evaluation. This volume, which is interdisciplinary and international, and combines academic and practitioner insights, hits the spot to great effect. Colin Scott, UCD College of Business and Law and UCD School of Law, Ireland Better state regulation is a key component of economic reform. This is the first book to comprehensively explore international experience in the use of Regulatory Impact Assessment (RIA), which involves assessing the potential benefits and costs of any regulatory change. The contributors reveal that RIA is being adopted by an increasing number of countries as a route to better regulation with varying degrees of success. The book includes contributions from leading experts on regulatory reform and introduces a range of case studies from developed, developing and transitional economies. Comprehensive in its approach, this book contributes to the literature on evidence-based decision making as part of the new public management. By rigorously examining the principles of better regulation and focusing on the problem of applicability and adoption of RIA practices around the world, it will greatly aid understanding of regulatory policy design and implementation. The book will be invaluable for academics and researchers of public policy and management in developed, developing and transitional countries. It will also be of great practical relevance to government administrators and policymakers challenged by the need to understand the scope and limitations of RIA.
