2) It discusses the historical and normative roots of the doctrines of effet utile, effectiveness and effective judicial protection present in the ECSC and CJEU case law.

3) It puts into context and analyses the ruling of the German Constitutional Court in Weiss/PSPP delivered on the 5th of May 2020.
