Steve Peers' seminal text on the justice and home affairs law of the European Union appears in its fourth edition, providing a detailed examination of EU legislation and case law on the issues of immigration, asylum, visas, border controls, and police and criminal law cooperation, discussing the impact and ongoing development of EU law in these complex and controversial areas.

The updated edition, divided into two volumes entitled EU Asylum and Immigration Law and EU Criminal Law, Policing, and Civil Law, particularly covers new EU legislation, case law, or operational developments since 2010 on internal border checks, external border controls, visa lists, litigation to obtain a visa, the Schengen Information System, the Visa Information System, family reunion, non-EU students, long-term residents, all aspects of refugee law (the definition of
'refugee' and subsidiarity protection, the rights of asylum-seekers, Member States' responsibility for asylum-seekers), irregular migrants' rights, fair trials legislation, the European Arrest Warrant, the European Investigation Order, crime victims' rights, and data protection. It also covers the institutional framework
for these issues, the related human rights aspects, and the connections with other areas of EU law, like the free movement of EU citizens. Finally, it summarizes EU civil law rules, and is updated to cover new legislation on civil jurisdiction, insolvency, small claims, and cross-border family issues.

This edition is the definitive guide to these complex, controversial and fast-developing areas of EU law and will be invaluable to scholars, practitioners, and students in the field.

Review quote

Review from previous edition Peers' work is a highly valuable endeavour to the extent that it brings clarity to a subject fraught with technicalities. * Renaud Colson, Yearbook of European Law *
