Constitutional strategies in the face of multilevel governance. 01/10/2019 - 30/09/2023


This project examines constitutional strategies that secure the jurisdictional integrity of both national and EU law within national boundaries while at the same time providing legitimacy for European claims of supremacy within the national legal system. It identifies enabling strategies, impact strategies and multi-layered strategies to find whether the combination of these strategies lead to an efficiency or a legitimacy strategy. The research looks for factors that determine types of strategies and dynamics within these strategies. It also identifies mechanism to adapt strategies to new developments.
