Constitutional Limits of EU Action by Grainne de Burca
Book DescriptionThis important new book explores the issues underlying current and longstanding concerns over the 'creeping competences' of the European Union. A fundamental question since the early origins of the European Union in the functionally limited economic, coal and steel and atomic energies communities of the 1950s has been the legitimate scope and limits of its powers of action, and the relationship between these powers and those of its component Member States. This issue, which centres on the legitimacy of different levels and fora of government within a complex and growing economic and political entity, has been brought to prominence again by the constitutional agenda set by the European Council at Nice. Specifically, it has been highlighted by the call for a more precise delimitation of competences between the EU and the Member States. This book seeks to identify some of the issues of democracy and legitimacy which underlie the anxiety of state and sub-state entities over the 'creeping competences' of the EU on the one hand, and the questions of capacity and interdependence which pull in the direction of supranational and transnational action and governance on the other. Drawing on a number of recent controversies over matters such as public health and tobacco advertising, and the scope of the EU's human rights powers in the wake of the Charter, the book examines the problems inherent in an attempt to draw up a clear list of competences. It is suggested that the crucial issues are those of institutional design and constitutional culture - including a renewed commitment to a better articulated notion of subsidiarity - rather than definitional fiat.
