The Economic Constitution

Tony Prosser

Oxford University Press

This chapter describes the major international organisations in whose context UK economic management takes place. Most importantly, the European Union has a central role, especially given the unique status of EU law within domestic law, and an introduction is given to the role of the EU in the sovereign debt crisis, in monetary policy, in competition law, in the control of state aids, in public procurement and in regulation. This is followed by an account of the World Trade Organization and the General Agreement on Trade and Services, and by coverage of the role of the Council of Europe and of the European Convention on Human Rights. There is also reference to the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development and to the World Bank and International Monetary Fund.

Keywords:   European Union, sovereign debt crisis, monetary policy, competition, state aids, European Convention on Human Rights
