1. van Eijken, Hanneke. European citizenship and the constitutionalisation of the European Union.

Degree: 2014, Universiteit Utrecht

The concept of citizenship in relatively new legal order of the European Union has its own meaning and dynamics compared to national citizenship. One of the important questions regarding this transnational form of citizenship is how to place this European citizenship in a constitutional context in the European Union. In that context, this thesis, examines the main research question: How does European citizenship affect the process of constitutionalisation of the European Union? This question implies that European citizenship is of a constitutional nature and affects the characteristics of the European Union, transforming from an international organisation cooperating on economic aims towards a more constitutional legal order. Constitutionalisation of the European Union is regarded as the process in which the European Union acquires more features that are commonly found in a constitution, and which is explored through the prism of four constitutional elements: the vertical division of powers, the existence of a common ideology (democracy and fundamental rights), justiciability and constitutional primacy. The effect of European citizenship on each of these constitutional elements is analysed in this thesis. Advisors/Committee Members: Prechal, Sacha.

2. Takàcs, T. Participation in EU decision making: Implications for the Hungarian political institutions.

Degree: 2009, Universiteit Utrecht

Amongst the main concerns that preceded the European Union’s all time biggest enlargement of 2004 was whether the new Member States would smoothly integrate into the EU decision-making procedures. The worrying speculations of how the difference between the interest, political- and negotiation cultures of ‘old’ and ‘new’ Member States would slow down decision making in the EU ? turned out to be wrong. Empirical studies show that the accession of the new Member States did not slow down the legislative machinery of the EU. However, the challenge that the ‘new’ countries ? amongst them Hungary ? faced, were manifold and required significant constitutional and institutional preparation and adaptation for acting as Member State. The constitutional preparation required the introduction of the ‘Europe clause’, an authorizing article laying down the rules on the transfer of competences from national to EU level. In Hungary, the years-long debates resulted in a constitutional amendment that authorized the exercise of the powers at the EU level replacing the originally sole exercise by the Hungarian governmental institutions. The thesis analyzed the institutional linkages between the national institutions and the EU level in the different stages leading up to EU lawmaking. The coordination of EU policy at national level revolves around the establishment of a position that Hungarian representatives will exert in the EU decision making. The Government’s dominant role in operating the coordination structure through a multi-layered construct connecting departments reinforces the tendencies prior to accession, when the Government played a central role in the conduct of accession negotiations and the Parliament acted as a bystander. After accession, the Parliament augmented its intention to join the Government in the conduct of EU policies and now scrutinizes the participation of this latter in the EU law-making processes. The parliamentary involvement includes significant information and deliberating rights. However, despite the existing control tools that Parliament has at its disposal, practice has shown that Parliament has not held Government to account for its deeds in the legislative discussions in Brussels or enforced its views previously expressed. The national position is then channeled into the Brussels arena. The matrix of networks that Government has established in Brussels centers around the work and function of the Permanent Representation, but extends to various other actors in Brussels and has on multiple occasions lead to successful lobbying and interest-representation in the EU law-making process. Once the EU act is adopted, it arrives back to national level to exert its effect. For this aim, additional implementing legislation by national institutions is sometimes required. In this respect, the Hungarian legislative principles maintain principles such as democracy and the primacy of Parliament’s legislative role vis-୶is Government. Thus, while implementing legislation is a ‘new’ task as well, it fits neatly into… Advisors/Committee Members: Prechal, Sacha, Petrétei, J..

3. Verhoeven, M.J.M. The Costanzo obligation.

Degree: 2011, Universiteit Utrecht

National administrative authorities are obliged to leave provisions of national law unapplied when these are incompatible with EU law. Irrespective of their position and powers under national law, national administrative authorities are supposed to comply with this so-called ‘Costanzo obligation’ as established by the Court of Justice. This raises questions of both European Union law and national constitutional law, particularly with regard to the principle of legality. This book explores three issues. Which European obligations apply to national administrative authorities with regard to provisions of national law that are incompatible with directly effective provisions of European law? Which national constitutional obstacles do they come across by giving effect to these obligations? And how should the tensions between the European obligations and the national constitutional obstacles be solved? The national law part of the research is focused on the legal systems of France, Germany and the Netherlands. The last question combines the European and national perspective and reveals a clash, which gives rise to the question whether the obligation in the current form should be maintained. Advisors/Committee Members: Prechal, Sacha, Widdershoven, Rob.
