'Deliberative Supranationalism' - Two Defences
Posted: 16 Apr 2002
This paper responds in its first sections to a series of articles in which Rainer Schmalz-Bruns developed a concept of legitimate governance beyond the constitutional state, which he called 'deliberative supranationalism' and contrasted with what Jurgen Neyer and the present author had suggested under the same title. Our querelles allemandes had follow-ups in various contexts, among both lawyers and political scientists. The second part of the paper first summarizes and comments on more recent critiques. It then deals with the programmatic rejection of comitology by the European Commission's White paper on Governance in the EU of July 2002.
