Book EU External Relations Post-Lisbon: The Law and Practice of Facultative Mixity by Dr. Chamon and Prof. Govaere

(06-11-2020) The Ghent European Law Institute (GELI) introduces the book “EU External Relations Post-Lisbon: The Law and Practice of Facultative Mixity” by Dr. Merijn Chamon and Prof. Inge Govaere, (eds).

Despite the Lisbon Treaty reforming the EU Treaty provisions on external relations, it was argued at the time of the Treaty’s entry into force that ‘mixity was here to stay’. While this has indeed proven to be the case, the Court of Justice’s jurisprudence has nonetheless redrawn the contours within which mixity can thrive and for the first time has confirmed the existence of ‘facultative mixity’.
