The Enforcement of EU Law and Values

This chapter examines the design of Article 260 TFEU and its application by the Commission and the ECJ. Much has been written on Article 260 TFEU, and the refrain continues along the lines that it is a potentially effective instrument for securing compliance with EU law which has yet to materialize. Some have started to question whether pecuniary sanctions can ever be an effective tool and have eyed the political procedure in Article 7 TEU with a glimmer of hope. But since money talks and the conditions in Article 7 TEU are onerous, it seems premature to discard the value of Article 260 TFEU just yet. Hence the chapter considers the issues surrounding Article 260 TFEU and their possible remedies.

Keywords:   TFEU, Article 260 TFEU, EU law, pecuniary sanctions, TEU, Court of Justice, ECJ
