Analysis: “Entry bans against third country nationals under the EU Return Directive: the Court of Justice’s decision in Westerwaldekreis” by Stefan Salomon

On Thursday, 3 June 2021, the Court of Justice issued its decision in Westerwaldekreis (C-546/19), a preliminary reference by the German Federal Administrative Court.
