Show Summary Details


This chapter reviews the evolution and range of EU constitutional narratives. It addresses the question: What kind of constitutionalism are we actually talking about in the process of European integration? The answer is the realization that, contrary to commonplace and widespread convictions, we do not talk about just one constitutionalism. Rather, we talk about many constitutionalisms.
