The congress will ask whether the current crisis of the EU is due to insufficient respect for the authority of EU law and a corresponding decrease of legitimacy. Top experts will discuss the increasingly contested effectiveness of EU law in areas such as Economic and Monetary Union. The role of the Court of Justice and the interpretation of the identity clause in Art. 4.2 TEU in the interplay between EU and national constitutional law will also be discussed.
