Chapter Summary

The Nordic countries were once seen as forerunners on the way to a progressive, fair and civilised society, but when they lost that status as "welfare icons", they seem, albeit to various degrees, to be hit by a severe identity crisis. At the same time, also the political and constitutional systems of many older EU Member States are undergoing important changes or facing severe challenges at the moment. This chapter covers quite a huge area of the current crisis situation, ranging from analyses of individual countries inside and outside EU (Italy and Iceland), to theoretical and philosophical aspects of the Draft Constitution and purely historical perspectives on the European legal development.

Keywords: Draft Constitution; European legal development; Nordic countries
