Chapter 18: The EU’s (emergent) global health law and policy
The effects of the EU’s policies are not limited to Member States – the EU is also one of many actors in an increasingly interconnected world. Without overstating its overall significance, Tamara Hervey analyses the growing importance of the EU’s externally facing health law and policy. The EU’s external relations law interacts with health through three main, overlapping mechanisms or policy spaces – trade, development and human rights. While these sometimes support global health, through mechanisms such as embedded liberalism in WTO agreements, overall EU external health law remains an area of frustrated potential.
