Om boka

The EU's activity under its intergovernmental pillars - The Common Foreign and Security Policy and Justice and Home Affairs - has traditionally been beyond the scope of judicial control offered by the central EC legal system. The increasing importance of this activity, and its growing intrusion into the lives of individuals, has led to a sense that the level of judicial oversight and protection is insufficient and that the constitutional balance of the Union stands
in urgent need of reform. While the need for reform is widely recognised, wholesale constitutional change has been stalled by the failure to ratify the Constitutional Treaty and the delay in ratifying the Treaty of Lisbon.

This book charts the attempts to develop more satisfactory judicial control over the intergovernmental pillars in the face of such constitutional inertia. It examines the leading role played by the European Court of Justice in reforming its own jurisdiction, and analyses the ECJ's development as a constitutional court in comparison with more established constitutional adjudicators. Throughout the book the current constitutional position is compared extensively to the reforms introduced by the
Treaty of Lisbon, offering a timely snapshot of the EU's federal structure in a state of flux.

«..this monograph is important reading for anyone with an interest in the role of the ECJ in the EU legal order...overall the book is a recommended read for any practitioner, judge, academic or student looking for a concise and well-argued snapshot of the status of judicial protection in the European Union both before and after the entry into force of the Treaty of Lisbon,»

Anthony Dawes, European Law Review

«The book offers an interesting and intellectually challenging as well as thoughtful contribution to the law on judicial protection in the EU. It is therefore to be recommended to not only academics and students of EU law but also to practitioners as essential reading on getting to grips with these important issues.»
