In this chapter, we review the behavioural critique of EU consumer legislation and focus is on how behavioural insights are being incorporated or could realistically be incorporated in existing or new rules. Behavioural scholars sometimes present EU consumer law as archaic and counter-productive and this creates a diffuse view that a behavioural turn would constitute a revolution for EU consumer law. We do not subscribe to this view. We begin by putting the current legitimacy crisis of EU consumer law in perspective. Specifically, we explain why EU law evolved to be an apparent anti-model of behavioural regulation and discuss whether the internal market constraints that still exist prevent a behavioural turn. We conclude that they do not. We illustrate this claim in relation to disclosure mandates. The central feature of disclosure mandates in EU consumer law has been severely criticised in the light of behavioural findings. We agree that they are over-used but find that disclosure mandates, as a technique, can still serve a useful purpose and suggest how their use can be streamlined. We also point out that recent developments tend to make disclosures smarter and point to directions to pursue this evolution. Finally, we turn to the core message of behavioural insights to policy makers: ‘make it simple’ and analyse how it has been received in EU consumer law beyond the specific issue of disclosure. We find evidence of an intention to simplify which predates the current commitment of the Commission to make simplification a priority, but highlight that efforts to simplify have led to half-baked solutions that are not simple enough. We conclude that EU consumer law does not need a revolution but a continued reform and that it contains the seeds of a more behavioural approach. [less ▲]

A march toward deeper democratic decision-making procedures cannot be combined with the current European strategy, because the EU is not conceived to be a democratic authority, but rather a supranational normative authority whose purpose is to achieve the objectives defined in the treaties and mainly, in accordance with the Monnet method, European integration through the establishment of a single market based on the perfect competition model. In this view, the so called democratic deficit is not an occasional dysfunction of the EU decision-making process, but rather a crucial prerequisite to implement credible commitment for market preservation.For these reasons we argue that democratic legitimacy and economic efficiency are decoupled in the EU integration strategy. It emerges from the existing discrepancy between the treaty’s formulations and the decisional practice of institutions, that democratic and economic goals are separately pursued. [less ▲]

This article seeks to present the labour immigration policy developed at the European Union level since the entry into force of the Amsterdam Treaty until the adoption of the first European law on labour immigration. The first part relates the European debates and discourses regarding the opening to new labour migration and it highlights the main steps of the policy debate at the European level. The European Commission discourse on labour migration is emphasised as well as the reactions of other actors, in particular the Member States. The second part examines the Council Directive on the conditions of entry and residence of third-country nationals for the purposes of highly qualified employment, also called the Blue Card Directive. This part highlights the features of the category of new labour migrants and points out the consequences of preferring temporary mobility. It also reviews other categories of workers such as seasonal workers and intra-corporate transferees. In the final section, the article questions the rationale of the on-going European Union discourse, the policy and its challenges. Despite new European Union discourse in favour of a certain kind of migrants; wanted migrants (skilled workers) are treated as nonwanted migrants. [less ▲]

Background: Large-scale international collaboration is essential to decipher relevant information in the context of omics-scale interrogations in cancer research. This is even more important for rare and fatal diseases like pancreas cancer (PC). Methods: The COST Action BM1204 is a unique platform to facilitate the collaboration of a broad range of European and international PC multidisciplinary research groups in order to: (1) integrate knowledge and experience in a multidisciplinary way 'from cell to society', (2) promote the application of uniform study tools and protocols, (3) foster their optimal use by early-stage researchers, (4) enhance the mobility and training of researchers, and (5) disseminate the results produced to the broader society. Results: This Action will develop novel interdisciplinary tools for collaborative research to improve our understanding of PC and its prevention, diagnosis and treatment. It also aims to answer questions related to the etiology, early detection, evidence-based and personalized treatment, and health management for PC. Furthermore, the Action will contribute to new insights into PC personalized medicine and beyond as well as to the understanding of complex and rare diseases taking PC as a best practice example. The Action aims at attracting young scholars across a range of disciplines in collaboration with more experienced researchers and enhancing active European participation in the international scenario of PC research. Conclusion: The ultimate aim is to foster PC research in Europe and to coordinate this effort with other international initiatives to reduce disease mortality. (c) 2013 S. Karger AG, Basel. [less ▲]
