"Beyond Legitimacy: Europe;s Crisis of Constitutional Democracy"

I engage with the more particular question, if there is currently a crisis of constitutional democracy in Europe, focusing mainly on the European Union rather than Europe more generally. Before taking on that question, however, there are two preliminary questions we need to address: First, what counts as a crisis of constitutional democracy? Second, how does this apply to the European Union given its supranational sui generis character. Only after addressing these two issues, I move on to the main part of my analysis of the state of European constitutional democracy.
