Summary

The Court of Justice of the European Union (CJEU) construes EU law as autonomous, that is, not depending on national or international law for its validity. It considers that protecting the autonomy of the EU legal order requires, above all, protecting its own ability to maintain from the authoritative perspective of EU law the narrative that EU law ‘stems from an independent source of law’ (Opinion 2/13). In this workshop, we will consider the meaning and consequences of this proclaimed autonomy of the EU legal order in different contexts, including Investor State Dispute Settlement and the Aarhus Convention.

  • Francisco de Abreu Duarte (European Parliament) - " ‘The last word is ours’ - the principle of autonomy as a claim for power?”
  • Laurens Ankersmit (University of Amsterdam) - “Misconceiving EU Autonomy under the Aarhus Convention”
