By making sure, the sovereign is both constituted and limited by law, Europe has been the cradle of de jure protection against despotism as counter-project to the de facto rule of the strongest. Over the last 50 years, European states even established an unprecedented supranational set of legal rules, protected and enacted by the Commission and the Court of Justice of the EU. The paradox of sovereignty was seemingly resolved. Theories of European integration emphasized the role of institutions to overcome collective action problems, ensure compliance and sustain the unique supranational legal system. Recently, however, the rule of law has come under pressure from several interrelated developments, challenging one of European Studies’ most pertinent narratives of ‘integration through law’.
