What is constitutional pluralism? What does it stand for? What does it want to achieve, contribute, or change in the European integration? Is it a viable, desirable or perhaps even an indispensable theoretical take on it? These were the leading questions discussed in the Symposium "Four Visions of Constitutional Pluralism" at the European University Institute in January of this year. Within the framework of the Legal Theory Working Group and under the auspices of the Academy of European Law, the organizers, Matej Avbelj and Jan Komarek, hosted four key scholars from the field of the EU legal and constitutional theory. Julio Baquero Cruz, Mattias Kumm, Miguel Poiares Maduro, and Neil Walker engaged in a groundbreaking three-hour discussion of their respective theoretical visions of the European integration. This working paper contains a full transcript of the Symposium.
