Chapter Summary

In the currently pending International Organisation for Vine and Wine (OIV) case the discussion focuses on the scope and interpretation of the sole Article 218(9) TFEU because, as Germany points out, no other substantive legal basis was indicated in the contested decision. This case raises crucial issues not only for the European Union (EU) and its Member States, but also for the proper functioning of the international organisations in which they operate. The outcome is easily predictable when considered only from the perspective of the EU interest. Considering the target of the issues raised by Germany, it appears that at the very least the OIV case should shed some light on the willingness, or not, of the CJEU to redress the balance somewhat in favour of those EU Member States who are full members of other international organisations and in that capacity contract rights and obligations in their own name.
