An Analysis

(p.423) 31 The European Constitutional Treaty
Comparative Law as Transnational Law

Udo Di Fabio

Oxford University Press

The European Constitutional Treaty, which was agreed by the heads of state or government on June 18, 2004, will, admittedly, not reinvent Europe, but it will establish a new foundation for Europe. It is true that originally the Constitutional Treaty was only supposed to improve Europe's legal bases and make the European idea and the institutions of the European Union more accessible to the citizens. But through the concept of a constitution alone, the Constitutional Treaty has created a vigorous political impulse and has marked a new level of European identity. The use of the term constitution, however, also gives rise to ideas, hopes, and fears that, in some cases, need to be corrected.
