The role of the European Court of Justice in unifying EU citizens
The European Court of Justice (ECJ) was instrumental in building the European Union. However, the European political environment is challenged by the enlargement procedure, the economic and financial questions as well as the arrival of refugees and migrants. The debate is on about how the EU should move towards integration or unification based on self-government dynamics as well as the role judges could play. The EU-funded UNITE project will build on the concept that ECJ acts as a ‘cultural-moral’ agent, searching for new ways of ECJ contribution in the unification of EU citizens and the growth of self-government.
