New post at Leiden Law Blog: No More Promised Land Waiting at the End of the Road for EU?

On 18 March 2012 I wrote a post on a new essay by Joseph Weiler on Europe as ‘political messianism’. The essay is also referred to in an article which appeared today on Leiden Law Blog: http://leidenlawblog.nl/articles/no-more-promised-land-waiting-at-the-end-of-the-road-for-eu. Have a look at this new blog of Leiden Law School, and check out the post which concludes as follows:

‘In sum, whether one views the EU as constitutional or administrative in nature, its perspectives in terms of democratic legitimacy appear to be rather gloomy. With no easy fixes available, Leiden University’s decision to launch the theme ‘Law, Democracy and Governance: Legitimacy in a Multilevel Setting’ as a core aspect of its research strategy can be considered a timely one indeed.’
