Market Integration and Public Services in the European Union

Market Integration and Public Services in the European Union

In a period when the nature and scope of the European internal market is hotly contested, this collection offers a topical analysis of the most pressing issues relating to market integration and public services in the EU. As the debate continues over the balance between state control and market freedom, questions are also raised about the relationship between EU regulation and national policy choices and the 'joint responsibility' of the Union and the Member States. Outlining the most important current issues relating to market integration and public services in the EU, this book also addresses the underlying, systemic questions of the relation between public services and markets, and services and the consumer. Chapters also examine the application of state aids and procurement law to public services. The final two chapters focus on two public service sectors where the mix of Treaty rules, case law, and legislation has operated in rather different ways: public service media and health services

Author: Jocelyn Kellam Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 30/11/2009

This 3rd edition describes product liability laws in 24 countries of the Asia-Pacific region including all of the large economies and populations. Expanded to cover Macau, Myanmar, Papua New Guinea, SriLanka, and the US Affiliated Jurisdictions in the Pacific, these jurisdictions offer additional insights, showing the various influences and distinct legal cultures which pervade the law of the region. A chapter on insurance in the region is also included. The product liability laws of the Asia-Pacific region are characterised by diversity. A mosaic of legal rights exists under contract, tort and statute in most countries. In many of these jurisdictions, product liability is only just beginning to emerge as a significant body of law and with many countries going through a period of economic development; some legislatures are only now beginning to recognise the need to address consumer protection and the legalliability of manufacturers in the region. The range of approaches to product liability is a reflection of the multiplicity of legal systemsin the region. Widespread reform of product liability laws has taken place inthe Asia-Pacific region since the 2nd edition was published. Part of satisfying a foreign client's needs, is understanding the legal environment in which they operate. With the globalisation of the commercial and legal marketplaces, legal practitioners must have knowledge of other legal systems in which their clientsaEURO (TM) operate. The reach of product liability has become worldwide in the 21st century.This book provides in one volume that knowledge.

Mass tort litigation against the gun industry, with its practical weaknesses, successes, and goals, provides the framework for this collection of thoughtful essays by leading social scientists, lawyers, and academics. . . . These informed analyses reveal the complexities that make the debate so difficult to resolve. . . . Suing the Gun Industry masterfully reveals the many details contributing to the intractability of the gun debate. -New York Law Journal Second Amendment advocate or gun-control fanatic, all Americans who care about freedom need to read Suing the Gun Industry. -Bob Barr, Member of Congress, 1995-2003, and Twenty-First Century Liberties Chair for Freedom and Privacy, American Conservative Union The source for anyone interested in a balanced analysis of the lawsuits against the gun industry. -David Hemenway, Professor of Health Policy & Director, Harvard Injury Control Research Center Harvard School of Public Health Health Policy and Management Department, author of Private Guns, Public Health Highly readable, comprehensive, well-balanced. It contains everything you need to know, and on all sides, about the wave of lawsuits against U.S. gun manufacturers. -James B. Jacobs, Warren E. Burger Professor of Law and author of Can Gun Control Work? In Suing the Gun Industry, Timothy Lytton has assembled some of the leading scholars and advocates, both pro and con, to analyze this fascinating effort to circumvent the well-known political obstacles to more effective gun control. This fine book offers a briefing on both the substance and the legal process of this wave of lawsuits, together with a better understanding of the future prospects for this type of litigation vis- -vis other industries. -Philip J. Cook, Duke University An interesting collection, generally representing the center of the gun-control debate, with considerable variation in focus, objectivity, and political realism. -Paul Blackman, retired pro-gun criminologist and advocate Gun litigation deserves a closer look amid the lessons learned from decades of legal action against the makers of asbestos, Agent Orange, silicone breast implants, and tobacco products, among others. Suing the Gun Industry collects the diverse and often conflicting opinions of an outstanding cast of specialists in law, public health, public policy, and criminology and distills them into a complete picture of the intricacies of gun litigation and its repercussions for gun control. Using multiple perspectives, Suing the Gun Industry scrutinizes legal action against the gun industry. Such a broad approach highlights the role of this litigation within two larger controversies: one over government efforts to reduce gun violence, and the other over the use of mass torts to regulate unpopular industries. Readers will find Suing the Gun Industry a timely and accessible picture of these complex and controversial issues. Contributors: Tom Baker Donald Braman Brannon P. Denning Tom Diaz Howard M.
