Reviews

...the book offers an important contribution to the study of EU constitutional law; it lays down rigorous theoretical and methodological foundations for further inquiries into Federalism and the EU topics and provides much useful information. The extensive use of comparison is to be welcomed because it makes it possible to highlight differences between the EU federalising process and constitutional life in other, better-established federal systems Giacomo Delledonne Public Law Volume 1, 2014 In addressing the question of how the decentralisation of public authority within a Member State interrelates with European Union law, the book fills a significant gap in scholarly literature. Further, it offers some interesting insights into how federalism relates to the structure of the EU itself. The large variety of issues covered by the book makes it a good read, with interesting and sometimes brilliant analysis, for anyone interested in EU law. The book is particularly noteworthy as it participates in a slowly emerging debate on the relation between the Member State's sub-national authorities and EU law. While there is as yet no principled and coherent approach to EU law towards local and regional autonomies within its Member States, the book provides some answers and provides a valuable starting point for anyone interested in further research on the topic.
