Practical issues of constitutional identity and national sovereignty in the European UnionExcerpt: In this study I aim to examine the problems of constitutional identity and national sovereignty, the possible reactions of Member States in this regard, and finally, the potential ways for our country to break out of this situation relying on constitutional law so as to defend our constitutional identity.
