Yearbook of European Law - Vol. 5

Excerpt

This Yearbook was born of an initiative of Oxford University Press: an initiative taken in recognition of the rapidly growing academic and practical significance of European law. The main purpose of the Yearbook is to contribute to the development of European law by publishing substantial and original work of enduring interest.

The term 'European law' has been variously defined, but is used here in the sense in which it is now commonly used in Western Europe; accordingly, the Yearbook concentrates on the law of the European Community, and also includes contributions on other areas of 'transnational law' in Europe, for example, on the European Convention on Human Rights and on other developments in the Council of Europe. It does not seek, however, to cover the laws of individual States, except in so far as they are considered in a wider European context.

As well as articles within this field, the Yearbook publishes a series of general surveys of European organisations, and a series of annual surveys of areas of particular interest. The scope of the annual surveys is necessarily selective: but they aim to highlight developments of particular interest, and so to provide, over the years, a balanced and authoritative account of the areas they cover.
