Protecting Member State Autonomy In The European Union: Some Cautionary Tales From American Federalism, Ernest A. Young

Faculty Scholarship

The European Union's ongoing "Convention on the Future of Europe" must tackle a fundamental issue of federalism: the balance between central authority and Member State autonomy. In this article, Ernest Young explores two strategies for protecting federalism in America - imposing substantive limits on central power and relying on political and procedural safeguards - and considers their prospects in Europe.
