Abstract

The problem of democracy is general and the European Union (EU) is just one of its many specific contexts. During EU constitution-making, political constructivist notions of European democratic polity-building and federal statehood in waiting were frequently courted by European politicians and political scientists. At the beginning of the new millennium, the EU was engaged in the self-generating process of supranational form of constitutionalism which was expected to legally strengthen the principle of democratic legitimacy at EU level and thus justify the concept of an ‘ever-closer Union’ within the context of political and legal integration.
