Framing the Subjects and Objects of Contemporary EU Law

Edited by Samo Bardutzky and Elaine Fahey

This timely book invites the reader to explore the lexicon of ‘subjects’ and ‘objects’ of EU law as a platform from which several dilemmas and omissions of EU law can be researched. It includes a number of case studies from different fields of law that deploy this lexicon, structuring the contributions around three principal elements of EU law: its transformations, crises, and external-internal dynamics.

Chapter 14: European integration in a crisis scenario: easy steps to revitalise the EU as a subject and to avoid disintegration?

Matthias Ruffert


The current crisis of European integration is far more intensive than former difficult situations. Overcoming it is by no means easy, as it is largely perceived as an underperformance in policy output.

Keywords: European integration, electoral law of the European Parliament
