EU Justice and Home Affairs Law
The third edition of EU Justice and Home Affairs Law is comprehensively updated and expanded to take account of the major changes introduced by the Treaty of Lisbon and the development of legislation and case-law since the last edition. It includes analysis of the widened jurisdiction of the EU's Court of Justice, the revised rules on the participation of the UK, Ireland and Denmark and relations with non-EU countries in this field, and of the impact of the new framework for human rights law in the EU, including the binding status of the EU's Charter of Fundamental Rights and the EU accession to the ECHR. In the area of immigration and asylum law, this new edition scrutinizes a wide range of issues that include; the development of the EU's border control agency; the adoption of an EU visas code; EU databases (such as the Visa Information System and the second-generation Schengen Information System); the further development of the Common European Asylum System; the EU's Returns Directive; and the Blue Card Directive for the admission of highly-skilled workers. In the area of civil law, this new edition contains an updated overview of recent legislation, including EU rules on conflicts of law, maintenance, payment orders, small claims and mediation. As regards criminal law and policing, the new edition includes detailed analysis of EU legislation and case law on issues such as suspects' and victims' rights, the European Arrest Warrant, the transfer of prisoners, other post-trial and pre-trial decisions, double jeopardy rules, EU anti-terrorist sanctions, data protection, and the development of Europol and Eurojust.
