The EU as a Confederal Union of Sovereign Member Peoples

Posted on by Armin Cuyvers in Public Law

The thesis of Armin Cuyvers explores a conception of the EU as a modified confederal system of sovereign member peoples and their states. A confederal conception which demonstrates how, contrary to popular belief, European integration does not conflict with sovereignty or democracy. For, properly conceived and constituted, the EU reasserts the sovereignty of the member peoples, and liberates national democracy from the confines of the state.
