Law plays a central role in the tourism life of the European Community. In recent times interest in tourism law has grown in tandem with the increasing economic, recreational and environmental importance of tourism.
European Community Tourism Law and Policy is the first book to recognise this trend at European Community level. It provides a clear, comprehensive and non-technical account of how tourism law and policy operates over most of the main areas of Community competence in tourism.
Key features of the book include:
- Extensive use of quotes from Community sources
- A clear account of Community laws affecting tourism
- Focus on context as well as policy underpinning law
- Complex ideas made reader friendly
- Wide use of tourism examples to illustrate legal points
- Extensive bulleting, chapter diagrams at start and student tasks at end of each chapter.
European Community Tourism Law and Policy will be useful for:
- Policy makers
- National and regional tourism authorities
- Industry representatives and professionals
- Tourism academics and students
- Legal professionals with information needs in specific tourism areas.
For non-lawyers, European Community Tourism Law and Policy is particularly useful in detailing through tourism examples the legal framework of the European Community, the core concepts of Community law and in explaining how Community laws are made and cases decided the Court of Justice and the Commission.
