Abstract [en]

This master´s thesis is an empirical study of Swedish national court rulings connected to European law never referred to the Court of Justice of the European Union for a preliminary ruling. National courts hold a significant position for European integration and the purpose for this study is to analyse what role national courts play in the European legal system. Proceeding from two perspectives within European integration theory; the judicial empowerment view and the sustained resistance view this thesis seek to set out whether the role of national courts can be aligned with either of these theoretical perspectives. With an analytical framework building on previous research this study examines three aspects of national court behaviour. This thesis breaks new ground studying national court rulings withheld from the preliminary reference procedure providing new empirical knowledge on national courts’ behaviour in the European legal system.
