There is a broad consensus in almost all member states of the European Union that the Union is in general a good thing. Politicians claim that the abolition of internal border controls will be of benefit to all concerned. But will it? This book, a comprehensive guide to human rights and civil liberties in the European Union, sets out to reveal the true extent of the deeply racist and anti-libertarian agenda of Fortress Europe. Michael Spencer provides an explanation of the complementary roles of Union institutions and the Council of Europe and clarifies the complex decision-making processes of the European Union. Areas of concern in different member states, as well as positive developments, are outlined in detail. Designed for quick reference as well as readability, and including extensive reference to original material, the topics covered include: asylum and immigration; police co-operation and data protection; racism and discrimination against minority groups, including gays and lesbians; social policy; and reform of the Treaty on European Union.
