Nordic And Other European Constitutional Traditions
Martinus Nijhoff Publishers, 2006 - Law - 178 pages
In the complicated legal and political situation that reigns in Europe at the moment, characterized not at least by the uncertainty of what happens with the proposed EU constitution after negative results in the French and Dutch referendums in 2005, it has become increasingly important to analyse the EU constitutional frameworks from historical and comparative perspectives. This book provides new insights based on perspectives from Member States such as Germany and Italy as well as the Nordic Countries. It also deals with European legal and philosophical heritage in general, as well as special issues like closer cooperation among 'Core States' and the role of the Court of Justice in recent EC law development. It is of interest both for legal practitioners and scholars as well as students of political science and history.
