The European Court of Justice plays a central role in the EU, but its importance as a political arena for conflicts regarding how to interpret the EU´s legislation is less known. In this report, based on unique material, the authors analyse how the Member States position themselves within the framework of preliminary Court rulings. The also discuss whether Member States, by being active in the Court, can influence the EU´s integration and what the implications for Sweden are.
