Essay - Dynamics at play in the EU preliminary ruling procedure


Marc de Werd - Professor of European law (Maastricht University) and judge in the Amsterdam Court of Appeal in the Netherlands 

The key instrument to ensure uniform interpretation and application of EU law by national courts and tribunals is the preliminary ruling procedure. This procedure was designed in the 1950s in the context of the European Coal and Steel Community, which was quite different from the current Union. Therefore the question is justified if the preliminary ruling procedure takes sufficiently into account the current dynamics at play.
