The single market of the European Union was created through enactment of the Single European Act in 1986, and was launched on 1 January 1993. The single EU market includes the four freedoms of movement – goods, services, people and capital.

A one page abstract of suggested submissions to the special issue is due by 15 September 2017, with notification by 20 October to those invited to write a full paper, a first draft of which is due by 2 February 2018.

A conference for authors will be held in Cambridge in Spring 2018, and final versions of papers are due by October 2018.
