Between Flexibility and Disintegration

The Trajectory of Differentiation in EU Law

Edited by Bruno De Witte, Andrea Ott and Ellen Vos

As the EU faces increasingly existential challenges, this timely book considers whether the proliferation of mechanisms of flexibility has contributed to this newly fragile state or whether, to the contrary, differentiation has been fundamental to integration despite the heterogeneity of national interests and priorities.
