Abstract

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.
