Abstract

This textbook aims to sketch out the main problems arising in the field of EU trans national transportation by providing adequate understanding of the legal setting in the five key EU legal areas for this sector: fundamental freedoms, private inter national law, posting of workers, social security coordination and social dialogue. Indeed, road transport is a truly living organism which makes it challenging for the laws to keep up with its ongoing dynamics.
In addition, due to its inherent transnational element, the process of application of rele vant laws is often shrouded in am biguity, making it difficult to solve the emerged conflicts of laws.

Against this background, this textbook provides an integral vision on the inter action of EU freedoms with social rights at EU level offering a com prehensive and unique indepth coverage of the most relevant topics and presenting nuanced guidance depicting problemsolving skills which was carefully selected by the leading academic experts. Overall, this po sition is addressed to not only academics but also to students, practitioners and others interested in the road transport sector.

This textbook was composed within the framework of an Erasmus + SENSE Project comprised of the following partners: Luca Ratti (University of Luxembourg), Amber Zwanenburg, Ruben Houweling and Zef Even (Erasmus University Rotter dam), Mijke Houwerzijl (Tilburg University), Herwig Verschueren and Bartłomiej Bednarowicz (University of Antwerp) and Monika Tomaszewska and Michał Szypniewski (University of Gdansk).
