The Coherence of EU Law

This chapter examines the meaning of conceptual divergence as it applies to EU law. Conceptual divergence is considered to be sub-optimal when it comes to upholding the unity that each and every legal order claims in order to pose as binding upon its subjects. Prima facie reasons why the EU law appears to be jeopardized by conceptual divergence are discussed. An overview of the subsequent chapters is presented.

Keywords:   European law, legal order, conceptual divergence, rights, discretion, convergence
