Chalmers, Damian (2012) The European Court of Justice has taken on huge new powers as ‘enforcer’ of last week’s Treaty on Stability, Coordination and Governance. Yet its record as a judicial institution has been little scrutinized. LSE European Politics and Policy (EUROPP) Blog (07 Mar 2012) Blog Entry.

In the ongoing effort to staunch the Euro crisis, last Friday saw the signing of a stringent new fiscal compact to limit budget deficits and debt, by 25 EU member states. The European Court of Justice has taken on a new role to enforce these provisions by enacting severe penalties on non-compliant countries. Damian Chalmers argues that the Court’s record has been very little scrutinized. In a second part of his case tomorrow, he argues that ECJ is too institutionally enmeshed with European Union policy-making in general. It cannot now serve its original purpose, and we should examine what alternative options exist.
