Denizeau, Charlotte (ed.), L'idée fédérale européenne à la lumière du droit comparé (Paris, France: Panthéon-Assas editions, 2019).

Even if we are careful not - for political reasons - to express it publicly, the federal idea has underpinned European construction since its inception. Always unnamed, it can be guessed through the functionalist community method chosen by the fathers. In the course of the successive revisions of the Treaties, has the federal idea been relegated to the rank of lost utopias? Or does it provide operational tools to meet the challenges posed to the Union and likely to guarantee their success? sustainability?
The purpose of this conference is to provide renewed responses to these classic issues, by inviting foreign (Germany, Switzerland, Belgium, United Kingdom, Italy, United States) and French professors, specialists in the various federal systems. Their cross-analyzes, based on their own national experiences of federalism or regionalism, shed new light on understanding, measuring and analyzing the European federal process, its ambiguities, its ambivalences and its degree of achievement.
