Presses Universitaires d’Aix-Marseille (P.U.A.M.) has announced the publication of a work by Jean-Christophe Barbato entitled “La diversité culturelle en droit communautaire. Contribution à l'analyse de la spécificité de la construction européenne,” winner of a prize for best thesis in public law awarded by Université de Nancy 2.
According to the editors, the work attempts to identify and study the content and nature of instruments used in community law to respect and promote cultural diversity, thereby contributing to the analysis of the specificity of the European structure.
The theme of the first part of Barbato’s book is “cultural diversity and economic integration.” The author addresses a series of questions regarding economic integration as an instrument to promote cultural diversity before addressing the issue of respect for cultural diversity as an obstacle to economic integration.
The second part examines “cultural diversity and political integration.” Barbato looks at two themes—“cultural diversity and community cultural competence as an instrument of political integration ” and “Cultural diversity and the structure of political integration.”
