Korte beschrijving

The Eurasian Economic Union (EAEU) is a new international organization established in the post-Soviet space. It claims to be based on the experience of the European Union (EU), and its court often cites the case law of the European Court of Justice. This dissertation explores the legal nature and functioning of the EAEU using the concept of legal order autonomy as the theoretical framework. The main objective is to find whether the EAEU can be qualified as an autonomous legal order similar to that of the EU. For this purpose, the research develops indicia of autonomy and applies them to the EAEU legal order by unpacking its nature, supranational features and role of the judiciary. The research demonstrates the limitations of the autonomous EAEU legal order and suggests ways to mitigate or overcome them.
