The essay deals with the constitutional and political development of the EU since the Maastricht Treaty and the failure of a EU Constitution. It suggests that the Maastricht Treaty introduced a constitutional setting that represented a break with the previous path of Europan Communities. The unsolved constitutional issue leaves the EU with a dilemma between a return to nationalism at the periphery and the deepening of social and political integration which would put into question the present liberal trust into free market.

Abstract

The essay deals with the constitutional and political development of the EU since the Maastricht Treaty and the failure of a EU Constitution. It suggests that the Maastricht Treaty introduced a constitutional setting that represented a break with the previous path of Europan Communities. The unsolved constitutional issue leaves the EU with a dilemma between a return to nationalism at the periphery and the deepening of social and political integration which would put into question the present liberal trust into free market.
