The European Union is the largest economic entity in the world and one of the largest political entities, with 493 million people in 2006. Fully updated for 2007 to include controversial and current topics such as the Union's enlargement and its role in ongoing world affairs, this accessible Very Short Introduction shows how and why the Union has developed, how its institutions work, and what it does--from the single market to the Euro, and from agriculture to peace-keeping and the environment. Pinder and Usherwood cover the entire history of the Union, examine the momentous changes that have taken place within the Union since 2000, and highlight the benefits, controversies, and lessons learned from programs such as its expansion into central and eastern Europe, and the circulation of the Euro. The book also examines the role of the European Union as a peace-keeper in Europe and beyond, sheds light on how it functions in world politics, looks at its role in supporting the rise of environmental politics, and considers the challenges and choices that lie ahead in the 21st century.

|Fundamental Rights Protection for Corporate Entities in the EU. Legal Protection of Undertakings Under the ECHR and the National Legal Orders in the European Union : Case Study of the UK and France Книга по Требованию Julia K. |
It examines that problem on the selected field of research, which is the Community competition law, in particular the European Commission' s investigatory powers in proceeding against anti-competitive practices. In such procedures the Commission has very broad and significant powers which overlap with fundamental rights as inspired by the European Convention of Human Rights, in particular inviolability of home, right to silence and prohibition of self-incrimination. The author goes through the complex jurisprudence to show that neither the European Court of Justice nor the European Court of Human Right any longer questions that the protection of some fundamental rights also extends to legal entities. However, it is still impossible to indicate precisely what the scope of those rights is. Therefore, it is argued that clarification of the scope of protection granted to the legal entities by the fundamental rights is an urgent matter from the perspective of all competition law players, particularly in the light of principles of the rule of law and accountability. The book focuses on the issue whether fundamental rights protect legal entities, and is so, to what extend.
