This article seeks to establish which scholars of European constitutional law produced particularly influential “constitutional imaginaries” - coherent visions of the EU and its legal and political order, anchored in some (explicit or not) ideology. After introducing the broader research agenda, within which this article is situated, part II discusses methodology developed and used to determine “whose ideas matter”. Part III then presents key findings of a large-scale survey conducted to that end while part IV concludes with some more general observations.
Keywords: EU Constitutionalism, theories of EU constitutionalism, scholarly influence
