The Prologue introduces the topic, the aim, the structure, and the main themes of the book. First, it explains why the issue of selection procedures to the European courts, that is the CJEU and the ECtHR, has gained such attention recently, resulting in legislative changes in this regard in both systems. Second, it outlines the key arguments presented in the individual chapters. Third, it highlights the key themes and tensions that run throughout the volume. By presenting the key themes through a series of questions, it helps readers of this volume to launch their own consideration and understanding of the issues.

Keywords:   overall introduction, key themes and questions, evolution of the European courts, Treaty of Lisbon, Interlaken conference, EU enlargement, Court of Justice, European Court of Human Rights
