Welcome to the NEWGOV Legal Task Force "Litigating EU-Law"

The NEWGOV Legal Task Force "Litigating EU-Law" was responsible for compiling, processing, and making available to the NEWGOV Project basic data and analysis on how the legal system operates.

The Legal Task Force compiled comprehensive data sets on the most important “inputs” and “outputs” of the legal system:

  • preliminary references and rulings (Art. 234 EC);
  • enforcement actions brought by the Commission against the Member States (Art. 226 EC); and
  • judicial review of the legality of Community acts (Art. 230 EC).

In this section of the NEWGOV website you will be able to download the respective data sets and codebooks as well as papers containing analyses of these data and summary commentaries, to help the non-legal specialist make sense of them.
