Part of the Legal Issues of Services of General Interest Series

Synopsis

Social Services of General Interest in the EU by Ulla B. Neergaard

The EU has limited legislative competence in the field of social law. However, the Member States are increasingly modernizing social services and social (welfare) protection, attempting to make social services more efficient by increasingly looking to the market for the provision of such services. This policy move brings social services into the radar of EU law. The EU response to this sensitive issue has resulted in a piecemeal and fragmented approach towards the treatment of a new policy area of Social Services of General Interest (SSGI) in EU law and policy. This book is a first contribution towards charting how SSGI have emerged as a special category of SGI in the EU, the reaction of the Member States and stake-holders and how policy is being made through new governance processes, carve-outs and safe havens in legislation and soft law, especially in the light of the new values of the EU introduced by the Treaty of Lisbon 2009. It takes an inter-disciplinary approach and will be of interest to lawyers, economists and political scientists who are interested in EU policy-making as well as practioners, EU and national policy-makers. Ulla Neergaard is Professor of EU law at the Faculty of Law, University of Copenhagen, Denmark. Erika Szyszczak is a Jean Monnet Professor of European Law ad personam, Professor of European Competition and Labour Law at the University of Leicester, Barrister, Littleton Chambers, UK. Johan W. van de Gronden is Professor of European Law at the Radboud University of Nijmegen, The Netherlands. Markus Krajewski is Professor of Public and International law at the University of Erlangen-Nuremberg.

Reviews

From the reviews: The book is divided into four parts (plus Part V, Conclusions), each dedicated to a different aspect of SSGIs. ... this book provides a sound, thorough analysis of crucial aspects of SSGIs. In my opinion is an absolute 'must-have
for every scholar interested especially in Services of General Interest (in a broad sense) but also with other branches of EU law such as (just to name few) competition law

, State aid law, social law and healthcare law. (Jakub Kociubinski, European Law Review, Vol. 39 (3), 2014)
