This compilation consists of key cases and materials in the area of European Union law, selected by the Department of International and European Union law of the Erasmus University Rotterdam to use in their bachelor education. Core areas of importance covered by this compilation are the four fundamental freedoms (goods, persons, services and capital), fundamental rights and competition law (cartel prohibition, the prohibition to abuse a dominant position and the prohibition of state aid). What makes this book unique and of added value is that it offers concise case law entries, consisting of a mixture of quotes and summaries. By indicating the main points discussed, Cases and Material European Union Law aids students, lecturers and others (practitioners etc.) to quickly comprehend the key issues of each case. These case law entries stem from the didactic vision of the authors, Masuma Shahid and Lana Said, who have over 15 years’ experience in coordinating and teaching law courses at Dutch universities. Both are convinced that these case law entries facilitate the reader to analyze and/or scrutinize the remainder of the cases on a higher and elevated level. This compilation is suited not only for introductory and advanced courses in the field of European Union law, but also for practitioners that deal with European Union law in their daily work.
