This working paper provides a legal analysis of the inclusion of social and environmental clauses in the modernisation of the EU's public procurement directives. It focuses in particular on Directive 2014/24/EU and evaluates the measures and provisions dealing with the obligation to comply with social, environmental and labour laws. It concludes that the co-legislators have managed to give contracting authorities and member states a lever to introduce more ethics in economic relations.

    Review Agence Europe, 25/11/2014:

    Le débat fait rage entre ceux qui, au niveau européen, souhaitent déréglementer, ceux qui souhaitent adapter la réglementation en fonction de la compétitivité des entreprises et ceux qui estiment, envers et contre tout, que la réglementation est un facteur de sécurité juridique et de protection de l'intérêt général au sens large.
