Journée d'étude

Traditions constitutionnelles nationales, traditions constitutionnelles communes

Nouveaux enjeux de l'état de droit en Europe ?

mardi 21 mai 2019



In a time where challenges to the rule of law in the European Union are multi-plying, the notion of Common Constitutional Traditions needs to be considered in the light of the necessary consolidation of the European construction based on a strong constitutional identity. The discussion will be moderated by Guy Scoffoni, Professor at Sciences Po Aix, ILF/GERJC and member of the Common Constitutional Traditions Group/European law Institute. It will focus in particular on:

  • The method of identification of Common Constitutional TraditionsIs a bottom up approach, starting from National Constitutional Traditions better adapted to Article 6.3 TEU and more legitimate?
  • What constitutional principles, freedoms and rights are deeply rooted as democratic tradition of the European legal family?
  • Emergence of new Common Constitutional Traditions? (Principle of solidarity, Pluralism, Judicial independence, Dignity, Privacy, Environmental rights...)
  • Common Constitutional Traditions and Judicial Dialogue. Does the notion of Common Constitutional Traditions allow the Courts to adapt their caselaw in light of new convergences between the national systems?
  • Common Constitutional Traditions and European Identity
