Show Summary Details

Preview

This chapter evaluates both the functioning and access to the Court of Justice, and frames these against non-negotiable criteria that come from the rule of law. It studies the Lisbon Treaty, which has made a number of changes to the judicial system in terms of reinforcing the rule of law. This chapter also tries to show the relevance of the rule of law, as well as the disadvantages that may follow due to a broad and weak understanding of the term.

Keywords: rule of law; Court of Justice; Lisbon Treaty; judicial system
