How do we grasp existential Europe? How do we explore the social practices, individual dispositions, sentiments and beliefs lying beyond the institutional façade of the European Union's crises? This volume addresses these questions by understanding European law, and EU law in particular, as one of the main social practices which forms our lives in Europe. It examines the ways in which European law shapes and interconnects with the individual's relationship to Europe, political forms and social forms. This thoughtful and reflective book offers an important response to the current upheavals in the EU and EU law.
