(p.9) 1 The External Dimension—Law, Courts, and the Court of Justice of the EU
The European Fundamental Freedoms

Pedro Caro de Sousa

Oxford University Press

This chapter identifies and reviews the elements of the external dimension that are relevant for a better understanding of the EU fundamental freedoms. Since the fundamental freedoms were developed mainly through court-made law, the extra-legal elements that will be used consist mainly of findings in the areas of jurisprudence, economics, sociology and political science concerning the nature of legal adjudication and judicial law-making in general, and the Court of Justice of the European Union in particular.

Keywords:   legal theory, sociology of the law, political science, courts and judicial activity, Court of Justice of the EU, legal reasoning, proportionality, balancing
