Patrícia Fragoso Martins, Rethinking access by private parties to the Court of Justice of the European, 2016
The current dissertation deals with an old topic of EU law regarding access by individuals to the Court of Justice of the European Union (CJEU) in order to challenge the validity of Union acts. The study isbased on two landmark judgments rendered by the CJEU in 1986, i.e. Les Verts and Johnston. It argues that the bridge between these two decisions has not been fully built in the CJEU’s case-law, which has left room for uncertainties, ambiguities and insufficiencies in what concerns the judicial protection of private parties vis-à-vis the EU.
