The scope of internal market law has been and continues to be a highly contested and politically charged issue. Many legal scholars in private and public law have raised questions regarding the substantive moral limits of the internal market (e.g., which things and relations are or should be subject to its market rationality) as well as questions concerning the procedure through which those limits are set (e.g., who decides and should decide what those moral limits are). The limits of internal market law as developed in the case law and discussed in scholarship appear to have a “moral” dimension in at least two distinct regards: not only may “moral” sensibilities of Member States justify restrictions of the Treaty freedoms; “moral” considerations also lie at the heart of the criticism concerning the socio-economic orientation of the internal market. The conference on “Moral Limits of the Internal Market” aims to bring together legal scholars from different fields to discuss these issues.
