Risse, Thomas and Kleine, Mareike (2007) Assessing the legitimacy of European treaty revisions. Journal of common market studies, 45 (1). pp. 69-80. ISSN 0021-9886
How legitimate are the EU's treaty revision procedures, that is, IGCs and the Convention? Since the rejection of the Constitutional Treaty the recurrence to intergovernmental procedures appears as one way out of the current dilemma. We argue instead that the Convention method is not to blame for the current crisis. On the contrary, it increases the legitimacy of EU constitutionalization considerably.
