On 16 January 2012 Matrix played host to a Bar European Group seminar entitled “NGOs and EU litigation: the inadmissible in pursuit of the unspeakable”. Kate Cook, a contributor to EUtopia law, gave one of the presentations. She dealt with the issue of which acts and omissions can be reviewed under new procedures brought in to implement the Aarhus Convention provisions on access to justice in respect of decisions taken by EU institutions. In her view, the restrictive approach currently taken by the Commission to the issue of which acts may be subject to internal review only exacerbates the difficulties caused by the Court’s restrictive approach to questions of standing more generally. Kate’s PowerPoint slides can be found here.
