Abstract

The Maastricht Treaty has Europeanized the German economic constitution, making the sovereignty of the Member States conditional on the dogma of competitive austerity. The legitimacy of the European trade state is, however, weakened by the remerging of protectionism of which Trumpism and Brexit are exemplary manifestations. This essay, after analysing the Italexit hypothesis in both the European and constitutional legal system, stresses the need to find a new form of reconciliation between the values of supranational integration and of social-democratic constitutionalism.
