The Effectiveness of the European Court of Justice

Why reluctant states comply

Diana Panke

Published by Manchester University Press

  • Explains how and under what conditions the widespread compliance instruments of international courts can end norm violations Provides and in-depth and up to date analysis of compliance dynamics in the European Union based on a comprehensive dataset on member state imfringements
  • Demonstrates that responses to judicial discourses, judgements and financial sanctions vary form case to case and that even the same government can react to ECJ compliance instruments differently in different cases Develops a theory that explains why compliance instruments of court are only sometimes effective and applies quantitive methods to show that issue specific variables are not important
  • Ultimately illustrates that states do not resist the power of international courts thereby stressing the importance of legalisation
