New to this edition: A new Chapter 28 explores the EU response to the COVID-19 pandemic, highlighting the strengths and weaknesses of the EU's efforts to fight and mitigate the pandemic using the public health, internal market, and fiscal governance dimensions of its powers. The European migration and refugee crisis is covered in a new Chapter 26, which examines why and how migration and asylum became political issues at the forefront of political debate. A revised Chapter 13 on the CJEU explores the history of the court as an institution of the EU, how it has developed its role, and how students can understand the 'politics' of the judicial arm of the EU's institutional framework. The book has been thoroughly updated throughout to reflect the diverse political issues and developments currently facing the EU, including the EU-UK Trade and Cooperation Agreement, the COVID-19 recovery, and climate change."--PUBLISHER'S NOTE.
