How 'European' are European Parliament Elections?

Research output: Book/ReportOther report


This note was presented by the authors for a workshop organised by the Committee on Constitutional Affairs on 26/27 March 2008. It analyses the relationship between European citizenship and European electoral rules through an analysis of some recent case law of the European Court of Justice. The paper tries to answer the question whether there is a single European concept of the European Parliamentary demos, or twenty seven separate, but overlapping, national concepts.
