The European Union with or without a constitution


- 1st edition -

Written by Nicholas Moussis, author of the well known book ''Access to European Union'', this book examines whether the European Union needs a Constitution in order to work with 27 Member States and progress towards its political integration. The author presents the main amendments to the European institutions brought about by the Constitution, which is actually in suspension after the negative referendums in France and the Netherlands. He proposes a new Constitution, democratically drafted by a Constituent Assembly and put in force after its ratification by the majority of the Member States.
