National Constitutions in the Era of Integration
Kluwer Law International, 1999 - Law - 204 pages
Constitutionalists have not been eager to deal with the legal structures and problems of the European integration process from the viewpoint of the nation-state and have often surrendered the treatment of these issues to Community law experts. National Constitutions in the Era of Integration is an exception. The varied contributions in this work offer a rare presentation of different nation-state constitutional approaches to the problems of European integration.
National Constitutions in the Era of Integration covers a number of diverse nation-state constitutional approaches to the phenomenon of integration and various integration processes in the contemporary world. Topics of particular focus include:
The International Association of Constitutional Law organised a Round Table Conference in Turku, Finland in May 1997 on the theme of this book. The contributions comprise the updated papers delivered at the Turku Round Table.
Its wholly unique look at the subject of integration, its broad range of contributors, and its thematic core make National Constitutions in the Era of Integration an important and informative work for scholars and teachers of constitutional law, national legislators and government officials, and European Union bureaucrats.
