- "The constitutional identity of the Member States is a topic of increasing importance in understanding the interaction between the EU and its Member States. This is because the EU is enjoined to respect the constitutional identities of its Member States in accordance with Article 4(2) TEU. There is also a trend among Member States to articulate their constitutional identities, in particular in relation to European integration. In this regard, this volume fills a need in scholarship by presenting critical analyses of the constitutional identities of selected Member States. Leading and well-placed experts contribute country studies on a range of states, which are compared using a framework that can be applied to other Member States as well. The analyses and comparison of Member States' constitutional identities take place in the context of the EU's multilevel architecture"-- Provided by publisher.

- "This edited volume is the product of a collaboration between Christian Calliess of the Free University of Berlin and Gerhard van der Schyff of Tilburg University in the Netherlands. The collaboration was made possible by the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation. The Foundation awarded Dr. van der Schyff a fellowship for experienced researchers, which he held at the chair for European and Public Law of Professor Calliess, Free University of Berlin in 2015. It was during this fellowship that the idea for the volume germinated. The editors express their sincere gratitude to the Humboldt Foundation for making this collaboration possible. The editors also thank the contributing authors for their cooperation in making this an EU-wide project on constitutional identity."-- Provided by publisher.
