This book brings together essays by leading legal scholars from a number of European countries. The focus of the essays is on the role of the courts at both national and supra-national level and they are all based on papers presented at a research conference held at the Copenhagen Business School, Denmark, on 18 September 2009. The book contains ten contributions altogether, each of which addresses different dimensions of the general theme. The three contributions in Part One represents a horizontal approach to the European courts' role(s) in the development of the European Social Model in that each essay examines the courts' treatment of issues arising across different subject areas. For example, Micklitz looks at anti-discrimination law, consumer law, and universal services. Part Two includes contributions that consider the courts' role(s) in a specific subject area: Spaventa on citizenship, Rönnmar on labour, and Roseberry on fundamental rights. The final part consisting of four essays investigates more explicitly theoretical and methodological aspects.
