discussion with the students. Therefore, for each class you must read the assignments speciﬁc to the topic of the class beforehand and be able to discuss them in depth. This preparation is necessary to follow classes proactively. The class will focus mainly on legal, but if necessary also on economic and political issues. Course Description : In the course devoted to the Constitutional Foundations of the European Union, we shall focus on the Actors, the Processes, the Principles and the Tools that frame the process of European integration in legal terms. We start with the sources of the European project and study the institutions of the European Union : the Commission, the Council of Ministers, the European Council, the European Parliament and the European Court of Justice. Our objective is to understand the internal dynamics of the institutional setting as it is since the Lisbon treaty entered into force (December 2009), so as to assess each institution's impact on law-making. We pay particular attention to legal tools, legal integration and the Judicial Architecture of the European Union. Required reading : Paul Craig and Gráinne de Búrca, EU Law : Text, Cases, and Materials, Fifth Edition, 2011.

Course Description : The process of European integration is currently undergoing its most acute multifaceted crisis (economic and ﬁnancial crisis, rise of Euroscepticism, migration crisis, Brexit, internal and external threats). This is reﬂected in a decrease in trust and harmony among the main constituencies of the European Union, the Member States and its peoples. This is reﬂected more broadly in a profound distrust of Europeans towards the European Union institutional system. Yet, Europe remains our condition. European States and peoples are in a situation of increased economic, social, cultural, legal and political interdependence. So the challenge in this course is to get a sense of our changing European environment : How to deal with a form of increased interdependence within the European Union when there is no longer a deep sense of mutual membership ? This will ﬁrst require that we look backward to the efforts of the founders to build a space of supranational governance in Europe, reviewing its successes and failures. The main focus of the course will be on the current challenges facing the European Union. Required reading : A scientiﬁc paper by week through the tutorat class.
