This issue of CLR-News is fully devoted to a (first) evaluation of the Posting of Workers Directive. Mijke Houwerzijl (Tilburg University) investigated the transposition into national law in various member states. In her contribution she takes a critical position with regard to some judgments of the European Court of Justice. Jan Cremers criticizes the weak and marginal way in which the services of the European Commission have evaluated the transposition of the directive. The opening up of the services market also had some unintended side effects (risk of social dumping, distortion of competition, regime shopping).
