Shaping EU Public Procurement Law: A Critical Analysis of the CJEU Case Law 2015–2017

What’s in this book:
The first part of the book offers a unique reflection on enduring themes in public procurement law such as the following and concludes with some thoughts on some of the salient aspects of this recent episode of silent reform of EU public procurement law through CJEU case law:

shaping of the scope of this regulatory regime;
development of tighter criteria for the exclusion of candidates and tenderers;
conduct of qualitative selection;
consolidation of the court’s previous approach to technical specifications;
new developments in tender evaluation;
inclusion of contract performance clauses with a social orientation; and
development of interpretive guidance concerning several aspects of the procurement remedies regime.
The second part of the book contains the essential excerpts of forty-one chronologically ordered judgments issued by the CJEU in the period 2015–2017, which have been selected because they raise either new issues or important matters of public procurement law. Each of the selected judgments is followed by an exhaustive and critical in-depth analysis, highlighting and providing insight into its legal and practical issues and consequences. An exhaustive subject index offers the reader quick and easy access to the case law treated in this book.

How this will help you:
This unique, well-reasoned book on judicial legislation in EU public procurement and concessions law is a ‘must-have’ reference work for judges and courts of all EU Member States and candidate countries and academics and legal professionals who are active in the field of procurement law. This book will also be valuable for law libraries and law schools across the world and for law students who focus their research and studies on EU law.
