In some cases, EU Member States will not obey EU rules even after having been condemned by the European Court of Justice (ECJ). Since the Treaty of Maastricht, the Commission has the possibility to seize the ECJ a second time and even call for fines in so-called "Second Proceedings" or "Penalization Proceedings". The first 29 such cases have been reviewed in a project funded by the Oesterreichische Nationalbank (Anniversary Fund, project number 13261). It has covered all proceedings that entered the ECJ´s registry between the Maastricht Treaty´s coming into force on 1 November 1993 and 31 December 2007. This archive makes these case analyses available to the public and also adds later cases, most importantly those with penalization judgments.

The database presents a comprehensive overview of case study research investigating the transposition, implementation, and compliance with EU law at the national level. The database presents analytical summaries of the more than 80 studies comprising more than 350 cases, including information on the scope of the research (countries, policy sectors, time periods, etc.), the state of compliance reported, and the causal relationships studied. The database also provides an easy way to compare findings across the population of case studies. The database is free and will be regularly updated.
The database has been developed by Dimiter Toshkov, Lisa Wewerka and Moritz Knoll with support of the Institute for European Integration Research of the Austrian Academy of Sciences.

Ein Forschungsziel des EIF-Projektes "Fabric of Governance - Interinstitutional Agreements in the European Union" war die erstmalige Erstellung einer nahezu vollständigen Liste von interinstitutionellen Abkommen (IIA), die in der Regel zwischen den Organen der Europäischen Union abgeschlossen werden. Die chronologische Liste der IIA bietet Informationen zu Inhalten und Fundstelle des Abkommens, beteiligten Institutionen und (sofern verfügbar) Links zu den entsprechenden Dokumenten.
