This timely book provides a comprehensive overview of European pension law with a dual purpose: both to introduce the legal aspects of different forms of pension at the European level, as well as to explore the main legal policy issues.

Throughout the book, the three main types of pension – state pension, occupational pension and personal pension – are examined, together with the issues of financing, institutions, solvency, stakeholders, and rights and duties. The book therefore provides a nuanced guide to the field, going beyond merely a paraphrase of European law or the case law of the European Court of Justice. Yves Stevens also outlines the main principles of European pension law, reflecting on them from historical, sociological and teleological points of view. The constant interaction between law, economics and social policy is the reference point for the legal debates at the heart of this book.

Offering a unique insight into how the European bodies work to bring about pension legislation, EU Pension Law will be a key resource for scholars and students in the fields of financial regulation and economics, European law, finance law and social security law.
Critical Acclaim
‘The author calls this book an introductory guide but indeed it is far more than that. It is the first comprehensive book covering EU pension law. The author is very experienced in this area and therefore provides a precise view and lots of insights. He combines a comparative analysis of statutory-based pensions, occupational pensions and personal pensions with EU rules and coordination issues. Last but not least he introduces the term “European Pension Law” and puts it in the right perspective. Anybody dealing with pensions in Europe should have and read this book.’
– Heinz-Dietrich Steinmeyer, University of Münster, Germany
