Participation in European Union Rulemaking

A Rights-Based Approach

Joana Mendes

Oxford Studies in European Law

  • Provides a detailed analysis of the Court of Justice and the Court of First Instance case law on the right to be heard in adjudicatory and rulemaking procedures, including a critical discussion of seminal cases
  • Presents a critical overview of participation in EU governance, from the early years of integration to the EU post-Lisbon
  • Develops a powerful legal argument for the extension of participation rights in EU law, to offer better protection to those affected by European regulation
  • Offers a legal insight into matters usually studied by political scientists, contrasting the perspective of the courts on participation with the broader perspective of the political process
