Sketching ‘Community Interest’ in EU Law

(p.406) Sketching ‘Community Interest’ in EU Law
From Bilateralism to Community Interest

Friedl Weiss

Oxford University Press

The concept of ‘common interest’, used interchangeably with that of ‘community interest’ and more recently ‘EU interest’, is used in different contexts and for ostensibly different purposes, including fundamental principles, particular market freedoms or rights, or underpinning exceptions from them. It has been proclaimed in provisions both of EU primary law and secondary law, and applied in adjudication by the European Court of Justice (ECJ) and by the Court of First Instance (CFI). This chapter provides some kind of descriptive summary inventory illustrating such instances of practice, constituting some raw material for the possible later development of a theoretical framework of analysis of their common properties and characteristics.
