Beyond the Established Legal Orders: Policy Interconnections Between the EU and the Rest of the World: Malcolm Evans and Panos Koutrakos

Research output: Contribution to journalReview article


eyond the Established Legal Orders: Policy Interconnections between the EU and the Rest of the World is a 12-chapter collection of essays arising from a EU/International Law Forum held at the University of Bristol in 2009 and edited by Malcolm Evans and Panos Koutrakos. All the contributors to the volume are leaders in their particular field of study. There is a fine balance in the composition of the collection between scholars who primarily focus on EU law or international law, in addition to other authors who specialise in areas including company law and economic law. The inclusion of the latter allows for a refreshing view of the linkages between EU law and international law and their consequences within specific policy areas from the perspective of "outsiders" in terms of the EU law/international law scholarly division. This is, in the eyes of this reviewer, extremely welcome and brings into consideration areas of great importance to both the global and EU legal orders but which might ordinarily be regarded as too specialised for a collection devoted to such a broad theme as the constitutionalisation of the international legal order, as this volume is.
