This shall concentrate on that part of the case law by which the Court has tried to compensate for the inaction of the political institutions. It shall examine this case law from a procedural viewpoint. The purpose is to find out which procedural weapons the Court has made use of. The examination will be confined essentially to the legal remedies employed against the Council's inaction. This shall first run through the forms of procedure which have in practice proved to be the most appropriate before going on to examine why the action for failure to act has been of so little significance.
