Judging Europe's Judges

The Legitimacy of the Case Law of the European Court of Justice

Edited by: Maurice Adams, Henri de Waele, Johan Meeusen, Gert Straetmans

After successive waves of EU enlargement, and pursuant to the entry into force of the Lisbon Treaty, the European Court of Justice finds itself on the brink of a new era. Both the institution itself and the broader setting within which it operates have become more heterogeneous than ever before. Also, the issues now arriving on its docket are often of great complexity, covering an unprecedented number of fields. Now available in paperback, this volume studies the impact of these developments, examining the legitimacy of the Court's output in this novel context and providing an appraisal of its overall performance. In doing so, specific attention is paid to its most recent case law on four topics: the general principles of EU law, external relations, the internal market, and EU citizenship.
