Synopses & Reviews
After a conceptual reflection on the different professional regulation patterns in Europe, this book explores the main features of the currently ongoing European professional deregulation policies. It focuses on the current changes in Portugal where there seems to be an important increase of self-regulating professional associations despite the European deregulation trend and highlights the fact that experts cannot stay away any longer from the prevailing changes in society nor should they remain confined to their specific disciplines.
