Litigating the Treaty of Rome: The European Court of Justice and Articles 226, 230, and 234
Thomas L. Brunell, Carol Harlow, Alec Stone Sweet
This paper provides an overview of litigation activity under Articles 226, 230, and 234 TEC, and an assessment of the European Court’s consequent impact on integration. It should be read in conjunction with the paper, “Note on the Data Sets: Litigating EU Law under the Treaty of Rome,” which describes the data that has been collected and suggests various ways in which these data might be used. When we compare what the ECJ does under Article 226, Article 230, and Article 234, we see that the ECJ actually presides over three quite distinctive systems. Each system has developed its own evolutionary dynamics, and each has impacted on European integration in different ways.
