Arthur Dyevre - KU Leuven
Abstract:
The enforcement of EU rules and regulations rests on a decentralized system in which national courts act as gatekeepers and compliance partners of the ECJ. Unlike in hierarchical, centralized judiciaries, the ECJ cannot step in to restore compliance by reversing the decisions of reticent national courts. The pure team character of the EU legal order makes it, we argue, highly vulnerable to uncertainty over membership. By undermining the institutional expectations of national courts, uncertainty can precipitate disintegration, even if the country formally remains in the EU. We test this hypothesis by exploiting the Brexit referendum as a quasi-experiment. Using a difference-in-difference design, we find strong evidence that the Brexit vote is adversely affecting the use of EU law. UK judges are referring 22 percent fewer references after the vote than did prior to it. With the future relationship between the EU and the UK still in limbo, our analysis suggests that the uncertainty arising from the political process has already begun to unravel the fabric of legal integration.
