  • 1.Does the EU have a constitution already?
  • no, it doesn't comparison to the constitu- tions of the member states France + Netherlands '05
  • yes, it has 'constitutional charter' (Case 294/83, Les Verts) literature on the constitutionalising the EU (Joseph Weiler, 'The Constitution of Europe')

  • how constitutionalising works? model condition challenge from the engagement of as many 'everyday politics' actors as possible (especially the non- governmental ones) response by the high efficiency of the supranational bodies supranational decision- making consolidation by the IGC high efficiency of the and incorporation into the intergovernmental decision- Treaty making

  • Existent constitution is... discrete incomplete made for lawyers not for people
  • 3.Is it a 'proper' one? What is 'proper' for the EU?
  • What is 'proper'? 1.proper for the EU -> i.e. not too much of a constitution/statehood 2.proper for the notion of constitution that we have -> i.e. like in nation states this is a logical trap

  • Involvement of nongovernmental actors excessive complexity → no fresh blood

  • Too many passengers, too small a bike
  • more proper then is easier to understand, no pillars, more QMV, closer to citizens, simpler

  • constitution is a tool 1.single text 2.false finalité politique 3.explains the profound reform
