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.
Edited by Michael Darmer, Industry and Trade Counsellor, Danish Permanent Representation to the European Union and Laurens Kuyper, formerly Industry and Trade Counsellor, Netherlands Permanent Representation to the European Union, Belgium
