Book description

The EU Treaties bind the Court of Justice of the European Union as an institution of the Union. But what does that mean for judicial lawmaking within the EU legal order? And how might any limits set out in the EU Treaties be effectively applied to the Court of Justice as lawmaker? This book interrogates these fundamental and underexplored questions at a critical juncture in European integration. It argues that the EU Treaties should be considered to function as the principal touchstones for assessing the internal constitutionality, and hence legitimacy, of all Union institutional activity - including the work of the Court. It then examines how far the Court of Justice complies with the EU Treaty framework in the exercise of its interpretative functions. The results of that analysis are striking and offer scholars powerful new insights into the nature and limits of the Court's role within the EU legal order.

Reviews

‘What Horsley offers … is not simply a critique of the role of the CJEU. He also examines the elementary questions that underlie the Union’s legal architecture … and offers answers to these questions on the basis of the Treaty that at times differ quite radically from those suggested by the CJEU. In doing so, he rethinks some of the basic assumptions underlying integration studies, and adds a rich layer to the debate on aspects as disparate as citizenship law, national identity, and the Euro-crisis.’
