The author identifies two areas where cases from the European Court of Justice are especially important: what constitutes discrimination, and which circumstances may justify such discrimination. Among his specific approaches to the complex issues involved may be noted the following:- the Courts interpretation of discrimination and restriction, both in general and in particular regarding the freedom of establishment and the free movement of capital-- grounds rejected by the Court, such as lack of harmonisation, counterbalancing advantages, a new form of establishment being seen as subject to equal treatment, lack of Community competence in the field of tax treaty law, and the protection of tax revenue-- the degree of convergence between the freedom of establishment and the free movement of capital, especially in cases on direct taxation- and- the territorial extension of the free movement of capital.
