Law and Policy of the European Gas Market by Monica Waloszyk

Here’s what the publisher has to say about it:

Law and Policy of the European Gas Market explores the law and politics of the EU gas market and in particular, the regulatory and competitive choices of institutions and bodies operating on the market, with a view to achieving a higher level of market integration. The book firstly addresses the latest stage in the EU gas market regulatory reform, while critically interpreting the preliminary effects of this reform. Secondly, it provides a comprehensive analysis of the topic due to the fact that it draws both on legislative and political science approaches. Monica Waloszyk concentrates on the latest legal developments on the EU gas market, while taking into consideration the geopolitical environment surrounding and fuelling such developments. Her insightful conclusions contribute to the discussion of the reassessment of the concurrent application of competition law and regulation in the EU gas market.

Featured book this month:

Maintenance and Child Support in Private International Law by Lara Walker

Here is a portion of the publisher’s description:

“No one would dispute that the duty to provide for those that you have a legal and moral obligation to support is very important. With the movement and migration of people both within Europe and globally there are more and more families and relations who live in different states. Therefore it is imperative that suitable and workable methods exist to create maintenance obligations and then secure the transfer of funds, particularly from abroad. In this book the provisions in EU Maintenance Regulation no 4/2009 and the Hague Maintenance Convention of 2007 are analysed in order to discover what developments and therefore potential improvements have been made in relation to the recovery of maintenance from abroad. It also includes an empirical study on the first year of operation of the Maintenance Regulation. Data collected has been analysed in order to supplement the critique of the instruments. The information and analysis is used to suggest suitable solutions for the future which include, amendments to the Regulation and recommendations for best practice.”
