The court of justice of the european union (cjeu) has taken a restrictive approach when interpreting the standing requirements applicable to private parties wanting to challenge eu legal measures. The lisbon treaty introduced some change, but access to the court remains overly restricted for private parties. The european union is by far the most successful regional integration community there is, and it has been widely imitated. This article seeks to explore and compare the standing requirements applicable to private parties before the cjeu and other regional courts in order to see if the cjeu has something to learn from the others.
