This essay discusses the rise and decline of the multilevel paradigm: a doctrine that represented the European system as a real constitutional system, a unitary legal system, although legally pluralist and therefore deprived of the character of exclusivity. This essay points out that the crisis of sovereign debt has placed the Union in the grip of an unquestionable constitutional disorder. The principle of mutual recognition of constitutional authority by the systems belonging to the European Area, the core of the multilevel paradigm, is no longer the unquestioned prerequisite of the case-law of the crisis (as highlighted by the case-law of the FCC). Therefore, the multilevel theory is the wrong ‘prescription’ to overcome the constitutional disorder. On the contrary, what is required is a new doctrine that is capable of disclosing the real constituent powers of the current globalized world and their conflict for sovereignty

Abstract

This essay discusses the rise and decline of the multilevel paradigm: a doctrine that represented the European system as a real constitutional system, a unitary legal system, although legally pluralist and therefore deprived of the character of exclusivity. This essay points out that the crisis of sovereign debt has placed the Union in the grip of an unquestionable constitutional disorder. The principle of mutual recognition of constitutional authority by the systems belonging to the European Area, the core of the multilevel paradigm, is no longer the unquestioned prerequisite of the case-law of the crisis (as highlighted by the case-law of the FCC). Therefore, the multilevel theory is the wrong ‘prescription’ to overcome the constitutional disorder. On the contrary, what is required is a new doctrine that is capable of disclosing the real constituent powers of the current globalized world and their conflict for sovereignty
