This concluding chapter examines the extent to which the functional roles of national courts are harmonized with the principles set by the rule of law. It first outlines the fundamental principles of the rule of law, i.e. their structural and functional aspects. It then turns to how the different roles identified in the previous chapters comply with the rule of law requirements. Finally, it provides some hypotheses on the factors that lead courts to choose any of the categories, and the necessary conditions for the optimal fulfilment of their role from the perspective the international rule of law.
