Les pirouettes des juges européens entre creation de hiérarchies normatives improbables et sacrifice des garanties juridictionnelles les plus élementaires. Anu. Mex. Der.

The main préoccupation of the international community seems to be to protect itself against the "terrorist" risk, even if it means to put between parentheses the Rule of Law. The international organizations, with the collaboration of the European institutions, now decide who are "good citizens" and who are not. The judgments Yusuf, Bosphorus and Behrami, of the European Courts, seem to confirm the particular status of the cooperation: the invocation of chapter VII of the UN Charter risk to make lawful any viotation of human rights. The communitarian judge seems to get out of this embarrassing situation by constructing improbable normative hierarchies.
