About the Authors
  • This collection of essays looks at the role the European Union could and should play in promoting healthier lifestyle, in light of the moral, philosophical, legal and political challenges associated with the regulation of individual choices. By tackling the main non-communicable diseases (NCD) risk factors (tobacco consumption, harmful use of alcohol, unhealthy diets and lack of physical activity), the contributors endeavour to identify common themes and determine whether and, if so, to what extent the lessons learned in relation to each area of EU intervention could be transposed to the others. By focusing on the European Union legal order, the book highlights both the opportunities that legal instruments offer for NCD prevention and control agenda in Europe, as well as the constraints that the law imposes on policy-makers.

    • First systematic analysis of an emerging EU lifestyle policy, which will appeal to those interested in the EU's public health mandate
    • Multiple viewpoints from renowned experts on the study and practice of lifestyle risk regulation
    • Offers a normative perspective on what the EU could and should do to engage with non-communicable diseases prevention
