Is there a basis for UK-EU compromise on enforcement and dispute settlement and the role of the ECJ?
The government has signaled that the direct jurisdiction of the EU's Court of Justice over the UK will end after Brexit. Open Europe's Stephen Booth argues that the implications for future enforcement and dispute settlement procedures will depend on the scope and depth of any UK-EU agreement.
The UK Government has released a paper looking at potential options for “enforcement and dispute resolution” within a UK-EU withdrawal agreement and the new long-term “deep and special partnership” it hopes to negotiate. The UK paper does not set out detailed demands but instead explores a series of precedents which it believes should inform future discussions.
