This introductory chapter first sets out the book's purpose, which is to examine the judicial development of Treaty provisions that regulate the scope of EU free movement law based on the premise that sustaining case law coherence is a vital constitutional responsibility of the Court of Justice. It then outlines the characteristics of ‘constitutional responsibility’ as it applies to constitutional courts, and applies that framework to the Court of Justice, leading to a more contextualized understanding of its institutional responsibilities as the constitutional court of the European Union. The final section discusses the significance and scope of free movement law. An overview of the subsequent chapters is also presented.

Keywords:   EU law, free movement law, Court of Justice, constitutional responsibility, constitutional courts
