Law, Identity and the European Narratives

The dilemma of many current European crises is that popular support for the ideals behind the EU – human rights, equality and shared prosperity – has dropped inside the Union. At the same time, the massive wave of migrants making their way into Europe are seeking precisely that: security, rule of law and economic opportunity.

Much of the earlier scholarship on European integration and the law has been constitutional, examining the issues of European constitutionalism within its framework. In contrast, the Centre of Excellence in Law, Identity and the European Narratives seeks to critically investigate the foundations of the European narrative about a shared heritage of law, values and ideals. The purpose is to examine crises through the development of conflicting narratives of Europe in 20th-century thinking and its impact on contemporary policies and popular perceptions.
