The Multi-Level and Polycentric European Union

Legal and political studies

Edited by: Robert Grzeszczak, Ireneusz Pawel Karolewski

This volume offers a broad conceptual spectrum on the political and legal system of the European Union. The heuristic of multi-level governance relates to the multiple actors, the interconnectedness between levels of decision-making, and the interpenetration of institutions and actors. Additionally, legal sciences stress numerous legal centers, which, on the one hand, espouse independent legal orders, while communicating with each other through legislative acts, executive decisions, and court decrees on the other. The fusion of the legal and political aspects of the EU provides an opportunity to view the sui generis system of the EU in a broader perspective, which promises to overcome reductionist approaches, both in legal and political sciences.
