Welcome to the blogosphere: "EU Law Enforcement" -- the blog of the Utrecht Centre for Regulation and Enforcement in Europe (RENFORCE)

We are delighted to pass on the news from our friends at the Utrecht Centre for Regulation and Enforcement in Europe (RENFORCE) that they have a new blog: EU Law Enforcement. Below is the announcement received from Mira Scholten (Utrecht), co-editor of the blog, along with an invitation to read the first post.

I am happy to announce the creation of our new blog - http://eulawenforcement.com/ - and its first blog post ‘Mind the trend! Direct enforcement of EU law and policies is moving to ‘Brussels’’ (http://eulawenforcement.com/?p=30#more-30).

Our aim is to establish a point for gathering information on and discussion of the new trend of proliferation of EU enforcement authorities and implications that they bring along. Each month we will publish a blog post written by an academic expert in the field, practitioner, representative of a civil society organization, etc. If you are interested to contribute or if you have (know of) a relevant publication/activity in the field, please, let me know!

The number of EU entities acquiring direct enforcement powers has grown from one to eight recently. The first post of this blog puts on the map and raises awareness of an ongoing development in the EU law and governance – proliferation of EU enforcement authorities (EEAs) – which so far has been unnoticed. The aim is to launch a discussion of the aims, means and challenges of this development to understand and contribute to shaping of effective and secure law enforcement in the EU.
