|Abstract: ||This article reviews the Court’s evolution, function and main decisions and discusses
its role, not only as an exclusively legal institution but also as a political player capable of driving forward European integration.
This article claims that the Court has pushed forward integration process in some important ways, clarifying and extending EU law. However, the Court is primarily a legal institution of an intergovernmental organization, the European Union. Thus, its
political power and role is limited to Treaties’ provisions and the Member States remain the key‑actors of the EU’s decision making system until today.|
