C’è un Comitato in Lussemburgo. Riflessioni comparatistiche sull’art. 255 TFUE a dieci anni dal Trattato di Lisbona
This paper analyses the new system for selecting the Judges and Advocates General of the Court of Justice of the European Union. This system has been introduced by the Treaty of Lisbon. In so doing, the system for selecting the Luxembourg Judges will be considered against the background of prototypical comparative models, both in nation states and in international organisations. Comparison will make it possible to understand the system currently in force in the EU as the result of a compromise. A prospective analysis will follow, in which independence and accountability, i.e. the two main goals of a selection system, are taken into account.
