Mapping Systematization in EU Law

  • Kai Purnhagen
Part of the Ius Gentium: Comparative Perspectives on Law and Justice book series (IUSGENT, volume 26)


Systematization of EU law follows, with regard to its formal feature, the same line as systematization in the nation-state. The different casuistic used for systematization in the nation-state hence also applies at EU level, although not showing the same intensity in its drive towards codification. However, the substantive requirement differs. While systematization in the nation-state aimed at identifying a nation, systematization in the EU is based on the establishment of an internal market. Instead of building on les grand idées, EU law formalizes the interaction of market players and finds problem-oriented solutions from challenges arising specifically from the establishment of the internal market. Understood in this way, legal systematization in the EU forms a somewhat different, typically European idea of systematization, which may hence not be viewed as a new species, but moreover as a mutation of the same species.
