The European Community (EC) has embarked on an ambitious legislative program for the new economy. In European Community Law for the New Economy professor Lucas Bergkamp analyzes the EC's current and proposed new economy legislation. The new economy, according to Bergkamp, is not only the internet, the information society, and biotechnology, but also a different kind of "old" economy, a different kind of corporate governance, and a different kind of government. Accordingly, in addition to the EC e-commerce, data protection, and biotechnology legislation, this book discusses also the grand principles of EC policy making (such as sustainable development and the precautionary principle), the theory of corporate social responsibility, and EC government reform. With its wide-ranging, insightful, and engaging analyses, and devoid of obliquity, EC Law for the New Economy is a unique publication. This book must be read by everybody who wants to gain a deeper understanding of the effects of EC legislation, the root causes of regulatory failures, and possible solutions to these problems. It is of interest to lawyers, politicians, policy makers, government officials, political scientists, advanced students and autodidacts. Lucas Bergkamp is a lawyer at the Brussels Bar and Professor of International Liability Law, Erasmus University Rotterdam - The Netherlands.
