Abstract

The Community's institutions have undergone several stages of development, including the merger of the executives, the creation of own resources, the extension of Parliament's budgetary powers and the creation of a Court of Auditors. At the same time the Community was putting into effect the fundamental principles of free movement of goods, persons, services and capital, and developing the common policies which are laid down in the Treaties or which proved necessary in order to attain, in the course of the operation of the Common Market, one of the objectives of the Community. On two occasions it had been enlarged by the accession of further European states, first Denmark, Ireland and the United Kingdom, and subsequently Greece. It has also commenced negotiations with a view to the admission of Spain and Portugal. The progress made by the Community is reflected in a vast range of legislation binding on Member States, firms and individuals, and in the body of case law built up by the Court of Justice in Luxembourg. The Commission wished to provide a work of reference for lawyers. It asked eminent specialists in the subject from the various Member States to make individual contributions to thirty years of Community law so as far as to trace the development of the Community, summarize the progress achieved in the various sectors and examine the difficulties which the Community has to face.
