(p.271) 12 Democracy and Direct Effect: EU and National Perceptions
The Coherence of EU Law

Thomas Vandamme

Oxford University Press

This chapter attempts to add a further dimension to the theme of discretion by expanding from application and enforcement of EU law to its transposition into national legislation. It focuses on two types of discretion: democracy discretion and direct effect discretion. The chapter explores whether these perceptions of discretion are indeed interrelated and, whether convergence between them is conceivable.
