European Integration and International Co-ordination: Studies in Transnational Economic Law in Honour of Claus-Dieter Ehlermann
Claus-Dieter Ehlermann is widely regarded as among the most knowledgeable, far-sighted, and creative shapers, practitioners, and scholars of European law. Among the prominent legal roles he has played in his influential career, his leadership of the Legal Service of the European Commission is perhaps the best known. This liber amicorum appears as his term at the Appellate Body of the World Trade Organization draws to a close.
In this book thirty of his distinguished colleagues offer fresh and provocative insights into many of the areas of international law on which Prof. Dr. Ehlermann has left his stamp. Topics include:
- the WTO dispute settlement system;
- regulation of trade barriers;
- the first signs of a global jurisprudence;
- the principle of proportionality;
- enforcement of competition law; and
- the place of human rights in European and global integration.
In its wide-ranging appreciation of the many tributaries that must come together if legal and economic integration is to be both human and prosperous - whether in Europe or in a wider field - European Integration and International Coordination is a rare work. Its precise but far-reaching evaluations and proposals, worthy of the scholar and practitioner to whom they are dedicated, will find thought-provoking echoes in the minds of all those concerned with any of the integration processes under way in today's interdependent world.
