Chapter 7: Loyalty and solidarity as general principles
Restricted access

Loyalty and solidarity are compared in respect of their roles and functions in EU Law and in Public International Law. It is argued that solidarity in EU law is stronger and more essential to the legal system than it is on the international plane. It is shown that loyalty qualifies as a general principle of EU law, whereas the same cannot currently be said for solidarity. This is despite their common functions in relation to compliance and fundamental rights and their shared importance for the future of European integration. Especially with migration and monetary policy, the Court has so far failed to use opportunities to further develop the normative force of solidarity.
