Industry and the European Union
Analysing Policies for Business
European policies increasingly affect the daily decisions of European firms. Better understanding of the motivation and reasoning behind policies that affect industry is therefore essential to those interested in or affected by industrial policy. Industry and the European Union explores different European policy areas, focusing on aspects that are of particular importance for business.
This important volume provides researchers, students and lecturers of European studies, international business and international political economy with an insight into how relevant European policies affect industry. The book will also offer all involved with industrial policy - including business associations, chambers of commerce and business information centres, as well as policymakers at regional, national and international levels - a unique and authoritative examination of industrial policy.

What Reviewers Are Saying
`Authors of books on economics and related subjects frequently claim that their work will be of interest to students, policymakers and business people. In my experience, however, they rarely succeed in living up to the claim. I think this book is an exception in actually achieving this objective. Its subject is the industrial policies of the European Union. I particularly like the broad canvas, which spreads beyond what is sometimes defined narrowly as industrial policy: there are interesting chapters on eleven different policy areas, and, together, they amount to a valuable source of reference. Each of the chapters is written by an experienced practitioner, working in the area, and there is an authoritative and informative feel throughout the whole volume. . . . I will readily recommend it to students at a variety of levels: undergraduate and postgraduate; in economics and on MBAs.' -- Stephen Davies, University of East Anglia, UK `This book is a most valuable contribution to the understanding of the complexity of European policies and their impact on individual businesses and industry as a whole. That focus makes this book unique. All in all, there are only a few books about the industrial policy of the European Union and none with such a focus.' -- Karel van Miert, Universiteit Nyenrode, The Netherlands `Contrary to standard works covering community industrial policy, this book is based on the experience of those involved in the actual formulation of policies. It documents the evolution of this policy towards a horizontal approach combining various instruments that need to be made consistent with each other. This book will be very valuable to scholars and policymakers alike.' -- Alexis Jacquemin, European Commission and Universite Catholique de Louvain, Belgium
