Europe's Passive Virtues

Deference to National Authorities in EU Free Movement Law

Jan Zglinski

Oxford Studies in European Law

  • Provides the first systematic analysis of judicial deference and standards of review in EU free movement law
  • Contains original data on the European Court of Justice's free movement jurisprudence from 1974 to 2013
  • Offers important new insights into debates about national autonomy, judicial activism, market integration, and the role of national courts
  • Argues that the Court of Justice has become more deferential towards Member State authorities and identifies the political, constitutional, and institutional reasons for this development
