(p.86) 5 Some Problems of the Customs Union and the Internal Market
From Single Market to Economic Union

Laurence W Gormley

Oxford University Press

The customs union is one of the important elements of the common market that was established by the European Economic Community (EEC) Treaty. However, the concept of the common market has now disappeared from the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union (TFEU). This chapter identifies some of the problems — internal and external — in the performance of the customs union and how they have been and are being addressed. This chapter determines that the performance and practice of the internal market and customs union show that in the EU they are linked concepts that form relevant elements of the construction of the EU. It also addresses the existential dependency question with regards to the relationship between the economic union and the EU's persistence.

Keywords:   customs union, problems, common market, EEC Treaty, Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union, internal market, existential dependency question, economic union
