Abstract

This chapter looks at the effects of the exercise of judicial review on the development of the European administrative space and, more specifically, at the conditions of implementation of EU policies by administrative action in the EU. The chapter outlines some long-term trends and effects of holding administrative action to account by means of judicial review, and the courts’ possibilities of influencing the development of public law in the EU.1 It thereby looks not only at the ‘big picture’ of the major phases of transformation of the system of implementing EU law by means of administrative activities, it also asks what the effects of these transformations have been on the possibilities of exercising judicial review, and what future developments may be necessary to remedy some of the remaining or newly emerging problematic aspects of the system. With regard to past developments, this chapter uses a descriptive approach historically contextualizing the observed features. Where the discussion of possible consequences is concerned, it compares the existing status quo with some requirements arising from general principles of the EU as developed in no small part by the case law of the Court of Justice of the European Union (CJEU)2 itself.
