Alberto Alemanno reviews the constitutional debates surrounding the EU’s tobacco legislation, and concludes that the current direction of travel may have itself reached its limits. In the past, the EU’s tobacco law and policy has been built on the EU’s power to regulate the internal market, including with binding legislation. However, as the EU’s tobacco-related goals have shifted more towards public health, this approach has more frequently come into question. Attempting to avoid this ‘harder’ basis for its constitutional powers, the EU has moved towards lighter ‘nudging’ techniques, relying more upon soft-law governance.

Governing Disasters

The Challenges of Emergency Risk Regulation

Edited by Alberto Alemanno

This is the first volume that addresses the complexities of the volcanic ash cloud that overshadowed Europe in April 2011, but has subsequently struck again in Australia, Chile and Europe. It does so from a multidisciplinary perspective, drawing upon research from economics, law, sociology and other fields, as well as volcanology and leading expertise in jet engineering. Whilst our knowledge base is wide-ranging, there is a common focus on the practical lessons of the ash cloud crisis both for subsequent eruptions and for emergency risk regulation more generally.

Europe has largely been absent from the US-dominated debate surrounding the introduction of nudge-type interventions in policy-making. Yet the European Union (EU) and some of its member states are exploring the possibility of informing their policy action with behavioural insights. Given the potential of this innovative regulatory approach to attain effective, low-cost and choice-preserving policies, such a stance seems surprising, especially when measured against growing citizen mistrust towards EU policy action. This chapter charts and systematizes the incipient European nudge discourse. After giving an overview on the growing appeal of nudging among policy-makers within and across Europe the notion of behavioural policy-making is introduced. Institutional and methodological efforts undertaken by the EU and some of its member states to embrace behavioural policy-making are described. Finally, the chapter discusses the major difficulties of integrating behavioural insights into EU policy-making and offers some concluding remarks.
