Adding Value? EU Governance of Organ Donation and Transplantation
European journal of health law 2010 Mar; 17(1): 51-79
This article examines recent developments in EU governance of organ donation and transplantation, focusing on an analysis of the Commission's action plan and the proposed Directive.

In the final analysis, the added value of EU governance initiatives in the field is likely to be measured by the extent to which they successfully address the ongoing problem of organ shortage in Member States.
