NEW ! Study on Internal Enlargement

News / 22.6.10

The professors Jordi Matas, Alfonso Gonzalez, Jordi Jaria and Laura Roman analyse, with a comparative perspective, several legal cases involving partition of sub-central bodies in federal or para-federal states.

Their aim is to forecast the legal consequences for the European Union in the event of secession or dissolution of a one of its member states.

This study is needed because the political dilemas in some countries could, in the near future, bring to the situation in which the European Institutions would need to confront the Secession or Dissolution of a Member state and the current treaties haven’t foreseen such a situation. That’s why it is of a special importance that we draw the guiding principles of a European answer.
