The EU’s ‘diplomatic accident’ with Morocco shows the perils of
judge-led foreign policy
7 maart 2016
by Luigi Lonardo – PhD candidate at King’s College London.
Morocco announced at the end of February that it was suspending ties
with the European Union. The statement was issued following a ruling by
the European Court of Justice that an EU-Morocco trade deal was illegal
on the basis that it included the territory of Western Sahara. Luigi
Lonardo writes that while the ruling is currently being appealed, the
incident illustrates some of the dangers of the EU’s judiciary playing
an active role in reviewing diplomatic and foreign policy issues.
