Whether in relation to access to Community justice, sex equality, race and disability discrimination, or policing, or in its external policies from Kosovo to China, the Union needs new principles, procedures and institutions to design and implement an effective set of human rights policies. The introduction of a single currency, the problems of racism and xenophobia, the need for a humane refugee policy, the growing powers of the EU in many fields, and the Unions imminent eastward expansion, all make it urgent to adopt such policies. In this volume the leading experts in the field, including individuals from every EU country, provide an insightful critique of policies and detailed recommendations for the future. The volume includes comprehensive analyses of the competencies of the EU in human rights, access to justice, and the Third Pillar.
