Obradovic, Daniela and Lavranos, Nikolaos, eds., (2007) Interface between EU Law and National Law , Groningen : Europa Law Publishing.
The book is aimed at examining the interface or interaction between European Union (EU) law and national law, in particular at assessing the delineation of competences between the EU and its member states regarding various policy areas. The book is intended not only to investigate the controversial aspects of the EU-national law relationship, but it should result into the presentation of recommendations for guiding the interface between EU and national rules in specific domains. Consequently, its objective is the production of guidelines for governing not yet clearly defined interactive correlations between EU and national legal norms in particular fields. More specifically, the following questions will be dealt with:Are there some policy areas lacking any interaction between EU and national rules? What are the remaining or residual competences left to the member states/national law? If there are remaining powers for the member states, are they actually exercised and if so in accordance with which principles? Thecontributions do not intend to take stock of the current doctrine and jurisprudence on those matters, but rather to use them as a starting point for an innovative analysis that will lead to new insights.
Obradovic, Daniela and Pleines, Heiko, eds. (2007) The Capacity of Central and East European Interest Groups to Participate in EU Governance, Stuttgart: Ibidem Publishers.
The integration of ten Central and East European countries (CEEC) into the EU as part of the 2004 and 2007 enlargements poses new challenges to EU governance, as the number of countries involved has thereby increased dramatically. However, the actors coming from the new member states also face challenges as they attempt to integrate themselves into EU decisionmaking processes. This book analyses the attempts of of civil society organisations from the Czech Republic and Poland to engage in EU governance in four policy fields. The guiding question is whether civil society organisations from the Central and East European member states have (or can gain) the capacity for meaningful participation in EU governance.
