Community Law and the Court of Justice

  • Neill Nugent
Part of the Comparative Government and Politics book series


An enforceable legal framework is the essential basis of decisionmaking and decision application in all democratic states. Although not itself a state this also applies to the EC. It does so because the Community is more than merely another international organisation in which countries co-operate with one another on a voluntary basis for reasons of mutual benefit. Rather it is an organisation in which states have voluntarily surrendered their right, across a broad range of important sectors, to be independent in the determination and application of public policy.
