The protection of legitimate expectations is the superior principle of European administrative law which is, at the same time, one of the most controversial and ambiguous grounds of judicial review of EU administration activities. The book presents a comprehensive, critical and comparative analysis of this legal phenomenon. Monograph answers following questions: 1) why the law should protect legitimate expectations, 2) what is the content and normative structure of the principle of legitimate expectations, 3) under what circumstances individual expectations deserve legal protection, 4)what are the legal consequences of violating this principle. The book also describes the dependencies in which the principle of legitimate expectations remains, such as legal certainty, prohibition of law retroactivity, ne bis in idem, irrevocability of administrative acts, etc. Moreover, in publication can be found gradations of defects of administrative acts, criteria for balancing the individual and public interest and also comparative analysis of the impact of national legal traditions on European administrative law. The book provides a clear model of protection of legitimate expectations in European administrative law, which has a significant practical dimension in the field of protection of Polish entrepreneurs operating on the EU market. The publication is addressed to representatives of science, as well as judges, lawyers and public administration employees applying EU law.
