The legal effects of international law

Show Summary Details


This chapter examines the various legal effects which different forms of international law produce in the EU legal order. The task of discovering and determining those effects has fallen almost exclusively on the Court of Justice. The case law in this area is very much the counterpart of the case law on the direct effect and supremacy of the Treaties and of internal legislation, the defining features of European constitutionalism.

Keywords: international law; legal effects; EU legal order; Court of Justice; case law; European constitutionalism
