In this latest installment of our video interview series at I-CONnect, I interview Jean-Philippe Derosier on the subject of national constitutional limits to European Integration.
The subject of our discussion is his recent book, published in May 2015, entitled “Les limites constitutionnelles à l’intégration européenne,” a comparative study of limits that the French, German and Italian Constitutions establish to European integration. In the interview, Derosier defines what he means by a “constitutional limit” to European integration, he evaluates the consequences of violating one of these limits, and he contemplates the future of Europe.
Jean-Philippe Derosier is Professor of Public Law at the University of Rouen. He founded and directs the International Forum on Constitutional and Political Institutions, an annual gathering of country experts in public law. He also sits on the Scientific Committee of the Association française de droit constitutionnel, and is Editor of Jurisdoctoria, a journal of comparative public law and jurisprudence. He holds a doctorate from the University of Paris I, Panthéon-Sorbonne.
The entire interview runs for 31 minutes, and is available here.
