Chapter Summary

The interaction of Community law with culture is long-standing. Seeking to 'lay the foundations of an ever closer union among the peoples of Europe' it was, however, the founding Treaty of the European Economic Community (EEC), which blazed the cultural trail. Resolution to act in the cultural sphere should be seen against the backdrop of international organisations already present in the field. Market integration requires national measures restricting the free movement provisions of the Treaty be abolished. Domestic laws and regulations impeding trade flows and hampering mobility must be eliminated. Community competences were extended to embrace the cultural domain, but respect and promotion of cultural specific city was recognised as a distinct and legitimate European Community (EC) objective, intended to guide the Community in its cultural action, and reshape EC decision-making in other policy areas.

Keywords:cultural domain; European Community (EC); European Economic Community (EEC); market integration
