Summary

This chapter discusses the Court’s 1979 judgment, Sheep Meat, where the Court insisted on its longstanding prohibitions of both unilateral safeguards and inter-state retaliation during a difficult agricultural dispute between France and the United Kingdom. This chapter uses the Sheep Meat dispute to elaborate on the strengths and limitations of the system of direct effect as a solution to international collective action problems within the European legal order.
