This paper reflects on the position of the Constitution for Europe in relation to liberal-democratic theory. While clearly not a Constitution in the strict sense of the term, the Treaty nevertheless provides a potential for future democratic consolidation at the EU level. This requires, however, that the scope of the Treaty is not over-constitutionalised.

This article discusses whether deliberation and decision-making on the constitutional norms of the EU can contribute to render it more democratic. Observing the procedural changes to constitution-making introduced with Laeken (notably the Convention), it is argued in the paper that such changes have made some progress towards rectifying the Union's legitimacy deficit.

This paper elevates liberal contract theory to the international scene, where it is found that inter-state inequalities are not illegitimate per se. However, while Rawlsian theory may not be applicabel to the world setting, it is nevertheless more consistent than what is often assumed.

How should we conceive of the EU's collective decision to expand towards Central and Eastern Europe? This paper analyses the process and finds that rationalist and constructivist approaches both have something to offer; while pursuit of self-interest may predominate, decision-making is played out within a framework of perceived consensus and need for legitimacy.
