The Chapter is concerned with the regulatory import of the Services Directive. The Chapter focuses on certain key provisions of the Services Directive, exploring in detail the scope of the directive (including in light of evolving business models such as the growing collaborative economy context); the main provisions on the freedom of Establishment and the free movement of Services; and the provisions on services quality of the Services Directive. In view of the complex textual provisions of the directive, the Chapter devotes particular attention to the interpretation of the provisions in the case law of the Court of Justice of the European Union. A significant aspect of the Chapter is the focus on the principle of proportionality, with exploration of the import of the application of the principle within the attained harmonisation of the fundamental freedoms.
