The decision of the Court of Justice in Kadi I achieved world-wide prominence for its enunciation of the relations between the EU and International legal orders, in respect of the UN sanctions regime for combatting terrorism. The Kadi II decision of the Grand Chamber Court of Justice in 2013 adds a new chapter to the saga and ostensibly reinforces the protections afforded by the Court in Kadi I. This ACELG discussion seminar explores the key aspects of this recent decision, especially as to the provision of reasoning to afford judicial review, secrecy and the discretion afforded to courts in reviewing aspects of this regime, in the form of  a dialogue between scholars of International law, EU external relations law, EU Constitutional and Administrative law and human rights.
