Legislation in Europe

A Comprehensive Guide For Scholars and Practitioners

Edited by: Ulrich Karpen, Helen Xanthaki

Legislation in Europe provides a practical introduction to legislation. Written by a team of experts, made up of both practitioners and scholars, it will allow national institutions to devise their own drafting manuals and to draft laws. The examination focuses on general principles and best practice within the context of the different governmental systems in Europe. Questions explored include subsidiarity, legitimacy, efficacy, effectiveness, efficiency, proportionality, monitoring and regulatory impact assessment. Taking a practical approach which starts from evidence-based rationality, it represents essential reading for all practitioners in the field of legislative drafting.
