Research Handbook on EU Health Law and Policy

The Research Handbook on EU Health Law and Policy (Research Handbooks in European Law 51WLzHZPO3LSeries) by Tamara K. Hervey (Editor), Calum A. Young (Editor), Louise E. Bishop (Editor) has been published.

The steady expansion of the European Union’s involvement in health over the past 20 years has been accelerated by recent events. This Handbook offers an up-to-date analytical overview of the most important topics in EU health law and policy. It outlines, as far as possible, the direction of travel for each topic and suggests research agendas for the future. Split into five parts, this book brings together international, interdisciplinary contributions to consider the past, present and future of EU health law and policy. The changing membership of the EU could see dramatic changes for EU health law and policy and the contributors consider current developments in the light of past trajectories. The book covers key institutions; policies on people and products; health systems; public health; and the health implications of the EU’s external trade policies and laws. Wide-ranging and accessible, this Handbook will appeal to academics and students focussing on EU health law or policy. It will also be of interest to lawyers and policy makers working in or with the EU as well as health managers and NGOs.
