Avbelj, Fontanelli, & Martinico: Kadi on Trial: A Multifaceted Analysis of the Kadi Trial

Matej Avbelj (Graduate School of Government and European Studies, Slovenia - Law), Filippo Fontanelli (Univ. of Surrey - Law), & Giuseppe Martinico (Scuola Superiore Sant’Anna - Law) have published Kadi on Trial: A Multifaceted Analysis of the Kadi Trial (Routledge 2014). The table of contents is here. Here's the abstract:

The judgment of the European Court of Justice concerning the Kadi case has raised substantive and procedural issues that have caught the attention of scholars from many disciplines including EU law, constitutional law, international law and jurisprudence. This book offers a comprehensive view of the Kadi case, and explores specific issues that are anticipated to resonate beyond the immediate case from which they derive.

The first part of the volume sets out an analysis of the new judgment of the Court, favouring a "contextual" reading of what is the latest link in a judicial chain. The following three parts offer interdisciplinary accounts of the decision of the European Court of Justice, including legal theory, constitutional law, and international law. The book closes with an epilogue by Ernst-Ulrich Petersmann, who studies the role of the Kadi case in the methodology of international law and its contribution to the concept of global justice.
