An Ever More Powerful Court?

Oxford University Press

The chapter examines the dynamics between judicial and legislative politics in the EU regulation of working time. The case study unfolds the process through which the Working Time Directive was initially adopted, and how subsequently the definition of working time as laid down in the directive was seriously disrupted by legal interpretations. The political responses to legal integration are then investigated by tracing why judicial influence on the policy output was ultimately rejected, despite intense and prolonged interaction between political actors and social partners.
