  • Constitutional Reasoning in the European Union and the Charter of
           Fundamental Rights: In Search of Public Justification
    • Abstract: This article argues that the CJEU’s use of the EU Charter of Fundamental Rights in situations falling within the scope of EU law needs to be supplemented by clearer constitutional reasoning about the role of fundamental rights in the public order of the European Union. The article demonstrates, through an analysis of the Charter’s drafting context, that the primary function of this instrument is to highlight the centrality of a set of public goods in the EU, rather than merely to add to the number of individual rights to whichEU law gives rise. It is then argued that, in order for this function to be fulfilled, an interpretation of fundamental rights is required that both acknowledges their constitutional value as distinct from other sources of rights protection in the Union and offers adequate reasons for the application of the Charter standard. The idea of public justification provides a suitable starting point, particularly in situations of conflict with national laws, because it would give rise to a much-needed judicial debate about what the best standard of fundamental rights protection would be for the Union. However, such an interpretation of the Charter is currently lacking from the case law which, instead, utilizes problematic forms of constitutional and quasi-constitutional discourse, through continued reliance on a conception of rights as tools of enforcement of EU law, which it had advanced in its earlier case law.While this type of reasoning was well suited to the idea of theEUas a social market economy, it structurally precludes the re-imagination of rights as collectively authored claims about good government under the Charter framework.

  • Reversible Transparency: A Study of the New Danish Access to Information
           Act
    • Abstract: This article analyses the new Danish Access to Information Act, specifically how it has controversially reduced public access to information when it comes to the most central political decisions. These changes represent an interesting development in a state usually considered an exponent for a high level of transparency in the public sector. We analyse how the Act has made it possible to reject applications for information to be used for ministerial advice and pertaining to documents exchanged between ministers and MPs, and we discuss the introduction of an article enabling the rejection of applications solely on the grounds that they will use considerable administrative resources. A remarkable shift in the approach to access to information has taken place, resulting in diminished public access to the background material for significant political decisions. Pointing out the need for further investigation, we compare this Danish tendency to international standards and pose the question of whether the Danish case is an example of a more general trend towards a reversal in the level of transparency in liberal democracies.

  • Passing-On Unlawful Charges: Still No Small Matter
    • Abstract: This contribution focuses on the so-called passing-on problem in actions for repayment of charges levied by Member States in breach of EU law. ‘Passing-on’ occurs when the economic burden of a charge levied from a business is passed on to burden that business’ customers, and possibly even further down the supply chain. The main issues at stake in the passing-on problem are whether actual or possible passing-on should be relevant to the amount repayable, and whether (and against whom) downstream claimants should be able to bring an action in respect of an economic burden passed on to them. Using examples from their home jurisdictions Sweden and Norway, the authors demonstrate that the passing-on problem is a multi-million euro issue which remains governed by diverging national laws, albeit subject to some restrictions developed by the Court of Justice in the absence of EU harmonization. With a view to safeguarding legal certainty, the effective protection of EU law rights, and the elimination of random discrepancies among national rules that are crucial to the proper functioning of the internal market, the authors call for EU harmonization of the legal issues triggered by passing-on. To that end, the authors present two alternative models for harmonization.

  • Public–Private Partnerships for Urban Development: Stakeholder Views
           in Slovenia
    • Abstract: The Public–private partnership (PPP) is an important instrument in planning and implementation of public infrastructure projects, including urban projects that influence the dynamics of urban development. Implementation of development oriented urban projects is crucial for raising the quality of life and preserving the competitiveness of cities. City municipalities (The Local Self-Government Law (2007) defines a municipality as a city municipality if its city centre has at least 20,000 inhabitants, offers at least 15,000 jobs, and is the economic, cultural and administrative centre of the region. There are eleven city municipalities in Slovenia.) in Slovenia have adopted so-called Sustainable Urban Development Strategies (SUDS) that define the main goals of the desired development in the form of visions. Achieving these goals depends on the performance or ability to implement projects in practice. Municipalities are facing a number of challenges in this regard. One of the major issues is financing – due to fiscal constraints municipalities are unable to implement certain important projects with their own funds or are forced to extend the implementation timetables in accordance with their financial capabilities. One of the mechanisms for the development of such projects is PPP. The Public–Private Partnership Act (Public–Private Partnership Act, Official Gazette of the RS, no. 127/06, 2006.) was adopted in 2006 with the aim of enabling the use of private resources in the implementation of projects of public interest. In Slovenian practice, the PPP mechanism has not been fully implemented or has not produced the desired results in the development of urban space. On the basis of interviews conducted with representatives of city municipalities and investors, the article analyses the causes of present situation and proposes solutions for a wider expansion of PPPs.

  • The Potential of Article 4(2) TEU in the Solution of Constitutional
           Clashes Based on Alleged Violations of National Identity and the Quest for
           Adequate (Judicial) Standards
    • Abstract: The contribution aims at determining the added value, if any, of Article 4(2) Treaty on European Union (TEU) in the prevention and solution of constitutional conflicts related to the alleged violation of national identity. To that end, the article considers the growing tensions in the dialogue between constitutional courts and the European Court of Justice (ECJ), in particular those emerging from the Gauweiler and M.A.S. and M.B. cases, and examines how the Luxembourg judges have interpreted and applied the identity clause vis à vis challenges based on the need to protect national prerogatives. The contribution thus dwells on the nature and scope of Article 4(2), TEU in light of the principles of conferral, loyal cooperation, subsidiarity and proportionality. Based on the case law following the entry into force of the Lisbon Treaty, and the recent disquietude manifested by the German and Italian constitutional courts, the article finally advocates the elaboration of a more restrictive notion of national identity by the ECJ, as well as the development of clearer rules of conflict when the constitutional specificities of the Member States are (allegedly) on a collision course with EU law.

The main feature of the harmonization using this model is that the home Member State should enforce the minimum requirement agreed on for issuing the relevant authorization, licence, etc. The other Member States in which the authorization, etc., is used (the host Member States) should recognize the harmonization and should neither enforce their own conditions for issuing an authorization, etc., nor try to make a parallel enforcement of the harmonized minimum requirement. Thus, the proper compliance with this type of harmonization faces two challenges: how to ensure that the host Member State enforces the minimum requirements agreed upon and continues to ensure that these are complied with, and how to ensure that the host Member States do not take it upon themselves to enforce the same requirements. If these two challenges are not overcome, the harmonization is not likely to work as intended, and consequently both the EU legislator and the Court of Justice of the European Union have taken different steps to overcome these challenges. By focusing on a selection of different areas using the COO Principle (insurance, driving licence, road haulage transport, audiovisual media services and credit institutions) these challenges and the remedies put in place to overcome them are analysed. This includes an analysis of recent reforms undertaken in these areas as well as an analysis of relevant case law. It is shown that different approaches have been used successfully to ensure better compliance, but there also seems to be approaches that are either less functional or a ‘no go’.

  • Beware of Courts Bearing Gifts: Transparency and the Court of Justice of
           the European Union
    • Abstract: This article reconsiders the principle of transparency in the European Union (EU) legal order and takes as its focal point the contribution of the EU Courts as regards the presumptions of non-disclosure of EU documents. The aim is to investigate the role played by the judiciary in relation to a twofold question: How open can the Union’s decision-making be, and is it possible for citizens to participate in the decision-making process of EU institutions, bodies, offices and agencies' The article argues that accountability deficits in the field of access to documents have been filled, to an extent, by the EU Courts’ imposition of boundaries on the broad derogations to the right of access to documents. But nevertheless, the article concludes that the establishment through the case law of general presumptions against openness has fundamentally weakened the standards of accountability. Rather regrettably, although the EU legislature set the default position to the widest access to documents, this has been reversed to non-disclosure by the EU judiciary as regards non-legislative documents.

  • From Economic to Symbiotic Constitutionalism: A Belated Post-Lisbon,
           Post-Crisis Transformation'
    • Abstract: This article departs from the traditional portrayal of the relationship between economic and social constitutionalism as an antagonistic pair in a never-ending struggle. Instead, it propounds a more conciliating thesis in light of the post-Lisbon and ongoing developments at EU level, which have advanced social constitutionalism further. This line of argument is better explained by the concept of symbiotic constitutionalism, which aims at keeping its economic and social components in balance. Symbiotic constitutionalism gives effect to the social market economy paradigm introduced by the Treaty of Lisbon and acknowledges the incremental socialization of the Union, reawakened in the aftermath of the crisis. Finally, it bestows a constitutional telos upon the EU that is not detrimental towards its economic and social components. These are no longer pitted against each other, but understood as a complementary pair.

  • The Relationship Between European Consensus, the Margin of Appreciation
           and the Legitimacy of the Strasbourg Court
    • Abstract: When determining whether a state should be granted the margin of appreciation, often the European Court of Human Rights (ECtHR, the Strasbourg Court or the Court) resorts to the method of European consensus. However, important issues remain unclarified concerning the relationship between the two notions, and how such relationship in linked to the legitimacy of the Strasbourg Court. This article firstly shows that the two notions are often, but not always, inter-dependent: there have been cases where the decision on the margin of appreciation points in a different direction than the outcome of the comparative exercise; and in further cases, consensus was not the crucial factor to be taken into consideration by the Strasbourg Court. Thus, consensus is one of the methods used by the Court in its application of the proportionality test, in order to decide on the scope of the margin of appreciation that the contracting parties enjoy. Next, the article explains why clarifying the relationship between consensus and the margin of appreciation will have implications for the Court’s interpretative practice once Protocols 15 and 16 ECHR enter into force. The multi-dimensional legitimacy of the Strasbourg Court is considered afterwards. The article then submits that the way European consensus is generally being used (i.e. as a factor which is obviously not irrelevant but also not always decisive for the outcome on the margin of appreciation) supports the multidimensional legitimacy of the Court. Nonetheless, it concludes by identifying inconsistency in the formulation of the relationship between the two notions in the ECtHR’s jurisprudence, and encourages the Court to codify in a more coherent way that relationship.
