The future of European constitutional law after Brexit

With the failure of the proposed ‘Treaty establishing a Constitution for Europe' in 2005, the debate about the constitutional character of EU law lost its momentum. Although the Euro-pean Court of Justice named the EU treaties continuously a ‘constitutional document', the constitutional approach became in fact a ‘sleeping beauty' (or depending on the perspective: a ‘sleeping beast') for more than a decade. The so-called polycrisis of the EU (Brexit, eco-nomic problems, rule of law crisis), however, reanimated the debate about the constitution-al character of the treaties again. Can we observe an unexpected revival of the constitution-al debate in European Law scholarship, too? The lecture will discuss these developments in detail.

Jörg Philipp Terhechte is currently (2021-2022) Visiting Professor at the Centre for Global Law & Governance, School for International Relations, University of St. Andrews and a corre-sponding member of the Institute for Legal and Constitutional Research at St. Andrews. Since 2012 he is Professor for Public Law, European and International Law at Leuphana University, Lüneburg and was elected as Vice President of Leuphana University in 2016. In 2018 he was also appointed Professor for European and International Economic Law at the University of Glasgow. He held visiting positions in Barbados, Beijing, Cape Town, Oxford, Saint Peters-burg & Washington, D.C.
