Constitutionalism and the Treaty of Lisbon: The Unsustainable Weight of the Market

  • Abstract

Informations and abstract


In the years preceding and following the Treaty adopting a constitution for Europe there has been much talk about the building of a social and political Europe. But has the approach to integration actually changed or, more simply, does the will to present a different, more attractive image prevail? In other words, without a doubt the idea is suggestive of a Europe in the name of democracy, rights and peace that overcomes the selfishness and limitations intrinsic to the Nation State organisation - but is this the Europe that emerges from the amendments to the institutive treaties of the Union? The intention here is not to discuss today's prospects for European integration tied to the Treaty of Lisbon but rather the underlying question of if and how this Treaty contributes to building a social and political Europe, a Europe enrolled in the prospect of modern constitutionalism.
