As the end of the year is approaching, it is time for the blog’s traditional recap of the year and celebrate the most popular posts of 2019. Keeping in mind that there is a certain bias in favour of older posts, which have had more time to become popular, we list the top 10 posts that have been read the most in the past year.
Once more, Brexit seemed to have an impact on readers’ preferences, as the most read post of 2019 is – somewhat unsurprisingly – focusing on the CJEU’s judgment in Wightman. Besides Brexit, two significant themes crystallized throughout the year, namely data protection as well as Opinion 1/17 (CETA), which was already anticipated in last year’s recap post. Lastly, both the Court’s judgment in Tjebbes, focusing on the reach of Union law in nationality matters, as well as its ruling in the Commission’s infringement procedure against Poland due to a violation of Article 19 TEU, have been prominent amongst our readership.
