Each of the Member States of the European Union has its own constitution, which not only contains the organizational structure of the state but also includes elements that provide a sense of order and identity to the society at large.
This book addresses whether new definitions of order and coherence that will be coined in European constitutional documents will replace the foundations at a national level and whether something will be lost in this transition.
Useful for European and national lawyers, academics, economists, historians, political scientists and sociologists.
