            The EU's human rights policies are plagued by double standards: different approaches are applied in the EU's external and internal operations. This book reveals the nature and scope of this bifurcation and the resultant discrimination, and argues that the irony revealed undermine...s both the EU's commitment to human rights and its moral credibility.

            The European Constitution, Welfare States and Democracy: The Four Freedoms vs National Administrative Discretion (Hardback)

            This book explores how the right to free movement of goods, persons, services and capital in the European Union legal order affects the nation-states and the peoples of Europe. The four freedoms, as they are known, are vital for the construction and protection of the European mar...ket without internal frontiers. As such the four freedoms have been recognized as elements of a European constitutional order, which may challenge the autonomy of national constitutions and parliaments. But how do the four freedoms affect the autonomy of national governments and administrative authorities? Can the effects of the rights to free movement on national governments and administrative authorities provide new insights into how the European Union legal order affects nation-states and the peoples of Europe? This book explores the relations and conflicts between the European constitution and the legal regulation of mixed economies and markets within welfare-states. In particular it looks at the discretionary powers enjoyed by national governments and administrative authorities, which have been used by welfare states to provide opportunities to include affected interests, experts, and users in public decision-making, and thereby fulfil democratic ideals such as inclusion and deliberation in complex and differentiated societies. The book analyses a series of judgments from the European Court of Justice which indicate that the four freedoms may be incompatible with the practice of entrusting national authorities with discretionary powers, and shows how this creates a democratic dilemma for welfare states.

            The European Court of Human Rights in the Post-Cold War Era: Universality in Transition
             

            The European Court of Human Rights in the Post-Cold War Era: Universality in Transition (Hardback)

            The European Court of Human Rights has been a vital part of European democratic consolidation and integration for over half a century, setting meaningful standards and offering legal remedies to the individually repressed, the politically vulnerable, and the socially excluded. Af...ter their emancipation from Soviet influence in the 1990s, and with membership of the European Union in mind for many, the new democracies of central and eastern Europe flocked to the Convention system. However, now the 'gold rush' is over, the Court's position in the 'New Europe' is under threat. Its ability to decide cases promptly is almost fatally compromised, and the reform of its institutional architecture is effectively blocked by Russia. The time is right to take stock, to benefit from hindsight, and to consider how the Court can respond to the situation. This book examines the case law of the European Court of Human Rights with particular reference to democratic transitions in Europe and the consequent enlargement of the European Convention system. Focusing firmly on the substantive jurisprudence of the Court, the book analyses how it has responded to the difficult and distinct circumstances presented by the new Contracting Parties. Faced with different stages of, and commitments to, democratic transition, how has the Court reacted to such diversity whilst maintaining the universality of human rights -- and how is this reflected in its judgments? The book tackles this question by matching rigorous doctrinal analysis of the case law with new developments in critical thinking. The cases are viewed through the prism of jurisprudence and political philosophy, with links made to European political integration and other international human rights systems. The book offers an original explanation of the Court's predicament by drawing upon 'thick' and 'thin' notions of morality and tying this to notions of essential contestability. James A. Sweeney is a Lecturer at Durham University.
