Show Summary Details

Preview

This chapter focuses on the judicial dialogue between the European Court of Justice (ECJ), its Advocates General and the European Free Trade Association (EFTA) Court. The results produced by the cooperation between the ECJ and the EFTA Court are considered a true paradigm for international cooperation between judicial institutions. The European Economic Area (EEA) type of dialogue is affirmative in nature, as far as the ECJ is concerned; and the framework conditions for judicial cooperation in the EEA are particularly favourable.
