This chapter examines the effectiveness of the Court of Justice of the European Union (CJEU). It discusses the goals of the CJEU, identifies the factors that may influence judicial outcomes, and assesses the goal-attaining implications of these outcomes. It suggests that the CJEU may be considered a success story not just because its judgments are typically complied with or because of its high approval rating, but because it has been able through a variety of formal and informal powers and strategies to develop legal doctrines, political alliances, and legitimacy capital than enabled it to significantly influence government conduct and support and legitimize the EC/EU Project.

Keywords:   international courts, judicial outcomes, international adjudication, goal attainment
