This analysis focuses on the free movement of Turkish workers within the European Union in the light of the recent judgment in Commission v The Netherlands (Administrative Fees). The central issue determined in the case concerns an increase in administrative fees to be paid by Turkish nationals for admission and residency permits in the Netherlands. The judgment of the Court has tried to clarify its approach to the standstill obligation found in art. 13 of Decision 1/80 and therefore provides for some interesting new developments with regards to the scope of application and interpretation of art. 13, as well as its relationship with art.59 of the Additional Protocol.
