Description - Democracy and Constitutionalism in the European Union by Federico Mancini
When he passed away in July 1999, Federico Mancini had served for 17 years at the Court of Justice of the European Communities, first as an Advocate General and then as a Judge. As such, he participated in some of the most important judicial developments in European Community law to date and witnessed the transformation of the Community into a monetary and, to a certain extent, political union. Throughout this time, he also contributed widely to academic debates and literature on the role of the Court in the process of European integration, the changing nature of the European Union, and on specific areas of law such as the protection of fundamental rights and labour law. This collection of essays brings together Mancini's most important writings in English, which concentrate largely on the issues of democracy, constitutionalism and individual rights in the European Union. The book presents the perspective of someone who witnessed the birth of European integration, contributed to it at a later stage in life and who carried an unfaltering belief in the promises and advantages of a federal Europe.
