In Part I, after discussing the international context, this Article outlines the EEC issues. Part II traces the early development of freedom of services and shows how there was reluctance to implement freedom of services. As will be shown in Part III, the European Court of Justice accorded direct effect to freedom of services so that this freedom can be invoked before state courts; it has preeminence over state rules that restrain freedom of services. Part IV discusses the other freedoms that contribute to freedom of services. The policy on coordination and approximation of laws, i.e. the policy on Community legislation, has undergone quite a change, which can be traced in the field of services. This trend will be explored in Part V. Finally, in Part VI, broadcasting and insurance will be used as examples of the ongoing struggle between preservation of state powers on the one hand and the striving for freedom of services in the Common Market on the other.
