Constitutional Law of the European Union offers a clear, new introduction to the constitutional and institutional law of the European Union. It takes a critical, contextual approach to European integration, looking to political theory, philosophy, international relations, as well as to law. In this way, it provides a clearer understanding of the often complex EU processes and is thus a more intelligible and interesting guide to EU law, locating it in its dynamic historical and political context. The book deals with vital changes which are crucial for the understanding of contemporary Europe and includes references to the Convention on the Future of Europe.
