Research output: Contribution to journalArticleProfessional


In the period january–june 2013 the court of justice of the european union (cjeu or the court) delivered various interesting rulings which are worth reporting. Two rulings stand out: jeltes, in which the court was asked whether the so-called ‘miethe case law’ concerning the right of unemployment benefits of wholly unemployed frontier workers, developed under the coordination regime of regulation 1408/71, is still relevant under the new regime governed by regulation 883/2004; and giersch, in which the court was asked whether member states may make entitlement to (portable) student financial aid conditional upon (prior) residence on national territory in addition, this overview includes a number of possibly less eye-catching but nonetheless interesting cases concerning overlap of benefits (van den booren, wencel), aggregation rules for family and orphan benefits (dumont de chassart) and third country nationals (hadj ahmed).
