The long awaited fifth edition of book ‘The Law of the European Union’ (formerly Kapteyn & VerLoren van Themaat) was launched on Friday 11 January 2019 at the T.M.C. Asser Instituut, The Hague.
The book constitutes a new and comprehensive manual of European Union Law. It is edited by Pieter Jan Kuijper, Fabian Amtenbrink, Deirdre Curtin, Bruno De Witte, Alison McDonnell, Stefaan Van den Bogaert and written by forty-eight authors, all of whom are recognized academic scholars and experienced practitioners of European Union Law.
During the book launch Professor Bruno de Witte (University of Maastricht) talked about the Structure and Evolution of Union Law; Professor Deirdre Curtin (European University Institute, Florence) discussed some procedural and administrative aspects of various proceedings before the Court of Justice of the EU; Professor Fabian Amtenbrink (Erasmus University, Rotterdam) discussed the vast developments in the Economic and Monetary Union; and Professor Christa Tobler (Universities of Leiden and Basel) presented the recent developments in the field of Equal Treatment and Non-Discrimination in European Union Law, focusing in particular on the recent case law on the horizontal application of the Charter of Fundamental Rights. The discussion was moderated by Professor Pieter Jan Kuijper (University of Amsterdam).
