In June 2004, the Association of the Councils of State and Supreme Administrative Jurisdictions of the European Union organised a two-day colloquium in The Hague, during which the quality of European legislation was discussed by representatives of the 25 Member States of the EU as well as of the Court of Justice for the EC. This book is based on, amongst other things, the General Report from that colloquium, the various national reports, and reports prepared by members of the Court of Justice and the Court of First Instance. More specifically the book deals with, inter alia, the European and national legislative process; the preliminary rulings procedure as a tool and as a source for the application of European law; and the connecting links between the EU and the national legal systems.
