The Kadi case and EU law

‘The Relationship between Community Law and International Law after Kadi: Did the ECJ Slam the Door on Effective Multilateralism?’, forthcoming in Matthew Happold (ed), International Law in a Multipolar World (London, Routledge, 2010)

The paper takes a critical look at the reasoning of the EU courts in the Kadi case and argues that the judgment of the European Court of Justice displays a considerable dissonance between the formal legal arguments employed by the Court and the substantive values that motivated its reasoning.
