On Thursday 9 September, Pekka Pohjankoski was invited to give the introduction to the discussion organised by Juridiska Föreningen i Finland on the topic of "National Courts' Civil Disobedience – Who Interprets EU Law in the Last Resort?".

In his presentation, Pohjankoski first dicussed the different theoretical foundations for and actual instances of resistance to the EU Court of Justice by certain national courts, followed by an analysis of the means with which this can be countered by the EU authorities, as well as an assessment of a possible constitutional balance between the EU court and national courts.
