Abstract

European public law today calls for a thick comparative exercise in light of the European legal space. This contribution deepens this concept of European public law by engaging with past projects, in particular those advanced under the specific term, European public law, or rather its Latin and French equivalents: Ius publicum europaeum and droit public de l’Europe. Indeed, the French and Latin equivalents carry a far thicker legacy and calls for engaging with a number of dubious projects, not least Carl Schmitt’s, to better grasp our contemporary situation.

Keywords: European public law, ius publicum europaeum, droit public de l’Europe, history of comparative law, Joachim Hagemeier, Mably, Talleyrand, Ernst Rudolf Huber, Francisque Bouvet, August Wilhelm Heffter, Carl Schmitt
