The present volume provides a thorough analysis of the Lisbon Treaty carried out by leading experts in the field of European constitutionalism. Beyond the discussion of the principal reform steps, the book addresses fundamental questions of European constitutional development. Alongside the presentation of main aspects of the institutional reform, as well as major changes in EU-policy fields, the study is specifically focused on the constitutional dimension of the Reform Treaty. In addition to an in-depth appraisal in terms of constitutional theory, special consideration is attached to basic constitutional elements of the Lisbon Treaty, like the protection of fundamental rights. Furthermore, ways of future treaty amendment and new solutions for potential ratification crisis are discussed. The present volume is the result of the European Constitutional Law Network's conference held 2008 in Sofia. Coordinated by its founding member Ingolf Pernice, the network gathers academics and judges from more than twenty states in view of transnational dialogue as well as academic cooperation.
