The operation of public services at both domestic and European levels is becoming a subject of considerable interest to researchers and policy makers alike. This book examines the economic and political implications of public services alongside a detailed analysis of their legal impact.Through this analysis, a new concept of constitutional citizenship is identified; a concept which would give consumers, as well as employees, new rights. The book also examines the new doctrine of services of general economic interest, as enshrined in the Amsterdam Treaty, and the impact it willhave on public services. The privatization of public services and the resulting impact on consumers is also dealt with.
Mark Freedland is Professor of Employment Law at the University of Oxford Silvana Sciarra is Professor of European Labour and Social Law at the European University Institute and the University of Florence
