ESIL 2016 Workshop: Jed Odermatt, “The Contribution of the Court of Justice of the European Union to the Development of International Law”

As mentioned earlier, EUglobal is hosting a workshop in the margins of the ESIL 2016 Conference in Riga. The papers for this workshop are posted here on the Interest Group blog. Today’s paper is written by Jed Odermatt, and is entitled “The Contribution of the Court of Justice of the European Union to the Development of International Law “. Here is an excerpt:

Studies have been made of the contribution of other courts, such as the International Court of Justice, or the European Court of Human Rights, to the development of international law. This contribution discusses the contribution of the CJEU. […] it seeks to illustrate, using examples from its jurisprudence, the variety of ways that international law questions come before the Court and how the Court approaches international law issues that have come before it. It goes further than the one-dimensional narrative of the Court’s ‘openness’ or ‘friendlisnes’ to international law, and discussing the multiple ways in which the CJEU acts as an international court, applying and interpreting public international law when resolving disputes before it.
