The Third Pillar of the European Union

Cooperation in the fields of justice and home affairs- Proceedings of an International Conference organized by the College of Europe, Bruges, the Institut für Europäische Politik, Bonn, and the European University Institute, Florence


Joerg Monar and Roger Morgan

The «Third Pillar» of the Maastricht Treaty on European Union covers major new policy fields of the Union such as immigration and asylum policy, police cooperation and the combat against tax evasion. The book analyses the essential elements of the present intergovernmental cooperation in this framework and highlights the political, legal and institutional problems of the implementation of Title VI (justice and home affairs) of the Maastricht Treaty.
