Abstract

In Justice Contained, Lisa Conant provides a doctrinal basis for her contained-justice theory, which describes how institutional actors mediate the effects of decisions of the European Court of Justice on European policy. Although the actual scope of Conant's theory is unclear, it persuasively explains the outcome in four case studies that she analyzes. Additionally, although Conant's comparative analysis between the ECJ and the U.S. Supreme Court is cursory, it provides a novel and intriguing look at the ECJ.

Keywords: European Court of Justice, U.S. Supreme Court, contained justice
