Abstract

Over more than six decades, this powerful supranational Court has expanded its jurisdictional authority well beyond its original, narrow boundaries. Foreign affairs have increasingly become the subject of action by the ECJ. The Treaty of Lisbon of 2009 became a pivotal point in European integration and its foreign relations. No study of the ECJ is ever complete without due attention being paid to the cases involving Kadi. They left an indelible mark on the approach of the ECJ towards foreign affairs and its relations with the UNSC. On the one hand, the landmark rulings empowered the EU to play a role in foreign affairs and security policy. On the other hand, it placed fundamental rights at the apex of the Union’s edifice and the central point of the EU’s approach to foreign affairs. Only Member States and EU institutions may participate in the opinion procedure and submit written statements to the Court. No other party may present amicus curiae briefs. When the EU’s uncompromising stand on the ECJ is analysed the bottom line that emerges is of material interest to the focus of this book: the Court has become an influential force not only in the EU establishment as a whole, but also in the Union’s foreign affairs in particular. Keeping this in mind, it has become essential for FPA to credit the judiciary for its role in foreign affairs and accept it as an influential actor in that context.
