European constitutionalism. Pluralistic concept of the relation between EU and national law in case law
Aim of the project
The aim of the research project is to present and analyse the pluralistic concepts of European constitutionalism in the context of the current challenges for the relationship between EU and national law identified in the case law (selected CJUE and constitutional courts (supreme courts) of the EU Member States). The research is intended to provide an answer to the question whether the theories on constitutional pluralism in the EU are reflected in the judicial decisions as well as whether those theories bring an adequate tool for description and analysis of EU law in the light of its dynamic relation with national law.
The theme of the project is justified by the need to find an adequate tool for analysing the dynamic relationship between EU and national law. It should be submitted that globalization processes, political, social and economic changes taking place in the EU Member States bring new and important challenges for the EU and national legislators as well as the judicial authorities, that affect the European constitutional pluralism in action. Moreover the research shall provide theoretical and dogmatic tools for the analysis of the constitutional cases with the European element as well as shall help to build the scientific platform for further discussion between EU law and constitutional law scholars.
