Foundations of European Law and Polity

Organisational unit: Institution

Organisation Profile

The Finnish Centre of Excellence in the Foundations of European Law and Polity Research takes up the challenge Europeanization has posed for legal theory. Based at the University of Helsinki, the CoE brings together researchers from different substantive areas of law, political science and history.

The key issue addressed is the relationship between coherence and fragmentation: to what extent can law and legal analysis retain the traditional ideal of a coherent legal order and to what extent and in what respect do discourses on law require new conceptual tools that acknowledge and explain processes of fragmentation within the legal orders?
