Chapter 2: Governing EU health law and policy – on governance and legislative politics
The Patients’ Rights Directive had a negligible impact on patient mobility. However, the law-making process behind the Directive, as analysed by Dorte Sjindberg Martinsen, provides a perfect case study to show how institutional structures and political preferences and processes enable and constrain EU law and policymaking in health fields. The ways in which different stakeholders were able to access and condition the law-making process gives important insights into the past and future of EU health law and policymaking. While traditionally, research has been focused on the European Commission and especially on the Court of Justice of the EU, the role of the Council and European Parliament should not be ignored.
