Infringement Proceedings

Infringement Proceedings

(p.65) 4 Infringement Proceedings
The Enforcement of EU Law and Values

Laurence W Gormley

Oxford University Press

This chapter considers whether infringement proceedings can be used for the enforcement of the Union’s values, and whether a concept of systematic infringements would be possible or desirable. It first sets the stage for discussion by providing some observations on infringement proceedings and how they work. Infringement proceedings have long been an important weapon in ensuring that EU law is properly applied and respected in the Member States of the EU. They are the classic method of supervision of the European Commission, yet they are also fraught with weaknesses, which the chapter enumerates in more depth. The chapter also considers the likelihood of the Commission acting via the infringement proceedings route in relation to Article 2 TEU.

Keywords:   infringement proceedings, systematic infringements, European Commission, supervision, TEU
