This comprehensive Research Handbook investigates the success of EU law enforcement processes. Going beyond traditional analyses of administrations and courts in isolation, it focuses on the increased cooperation seen between national and EU authorities, and on the widening variety of means used to enhance compliance with EU norms.

Bringing together leading experts from law, political science, economics and socio-legal studies, this Research Handbook provides a state-of-the-art analysis of EU enforcement laws, policies, and scholarship. It presents conceptual, institutional, and sectoral perspectives on EU law enforcement, advancing existing knowledge on why, when, and how laws are being followed or disobeyed. Contributors explore enforcement in specific EU policy areas, including foreign relations, economic policy, the internal market, competitiveness, and citizen rights. It argues that an overarching EU enforcement strategy would be more successful than the current model of diverse methods of enforcement in different policy areas.

Employing multi-dimensional and comparative approaches, the Research Handbook on the Enforcement of EU Law will be a valuable resource for scholars of European law and politics, public administration, governance, and compliance. It will also be a useful guide for public officials seeking to (re)design and assess effective and enforceable policies.

‘The Research Handbook on the Enforcement of EU Law is a must-read and standard reference for anyone studying how EU laws and policies are put in practice. This truly interdisciplinary, comprehensive collection of fine, in-depth scholarly contributions covers all relevant aspects of EU enforcement in many different sectors.’
– Eva Thomann, University of Konstanz, Germany

‘Offering an excellent and comprehensive overview, this Research Handbook deepens our understanding of enforcement. Using a multi-level perspective with a focus on policy sectors, it convincingly shows that enforcement is shaped by many factors, most importantly our conceptual understanding of enforcement including ideas about policy, the institutional context and the possibly conflicting interests of political actors involved. The Research Handbook enriches the current literature and forms an exciting starting point for further research.’
– Bernard Steunenberg, Leiden University, the Netherlands
