The European Union today stands on the brink of radical institutional and constitutional change. The most recent enlargement and proposed legal reforms reflect a commitment to democracy: stabilizing political life for citizens governed by new regimes, and constructing a European Union more accountable to civil society. Despite the perceived novelty of these reforms, this book explains (through quantitative data and qualitative case analyses) how the European Court of Justice has developed and sustained a vibrant tradition of democratic constitutionalism since the 1960s. The book documents the dramatic consequences of this institutional change for civil society and public policy reform throughout Europe. Cichowski offers detailed empirical and historical studies of gender equality and environmental protection law across fifteen countries and over thirty years, revealing important linkages between civil society, courts and the construction of governance. The findings bring into question dominant understandings of legal integration.

This book suggests a new explanation of the European Union's legal system, emphasising its break with the inter-state retaliation mechanisms and how Europe's special form of legal integration is facilitated by intra-industry trade, parliamentary forms of national government, and European welfare states.

This book examines, in line with the demands of the Aarhus Convention, the participation opportunities for civil society organizations in the area of environmental protection at the European Union (EU) Institutions throughout the policy cycle as a whole. The study aims at alleviating the paradox that arises in litigation in environmental matters before the European Court of Justice. For this purpose, the current standing rules are assessed and potential reforms are discussed in detail. Based on the rules existing in, for instance, the EU Member States and the USA, the author formulates a proposal for a new article in the Statutes and Rules of Procedure of the European Court of Justice to allow for the submission of amicus curiae briefs.
