Defining a new political contract for the EU

The EU is faced with the challenges of fashioning practices and institutions that reconcile the conflicting demands on political representatives from their international partners and their domestic constituents. This has been particularly manifest in the eurozone recently, but it reflects a deeper challenge which also concerns non euro-area members such as the UK.

The San Giorgio principle is now well established – where tax has been levied contrary to the rules of EU law, the taxpayer has a right to recover the tax paid. This is a consequence of and an adjunct to the rights conferred on individuals by the EU provisions prohibiting those charges in the first place. What is less clear is the changing role of the ECJ in relation to overpaid tax cases further to this principle. The speakers will consider two aspects of the shifting role of the ECJ.

Part of our Britain & Europe Series.
