“These papers are the most lively written and are fully on topic. And this is not an introduction to the usual lament on unevenness of collected papers: almost all contributions are self-consistent, scholarly, well annotated and present original research.” –  Wim Pelt, Law and Politics Book Review, Volume 23, Number 10

“[A] most welcome addition to this growing body of literature.
...the certainly to be recommended. Academics and practitioners will benefit from it. Through the lens of the 'emergency constitution' approach, the books offers a high standard of analysis of the main legal and also political challenges that the EU faces in addressing global emergencies. To be sure, the debate is far from being closed. New recent emergencies which involve the EU, such as the extension of debt risks to other EU Member States and the well-known changes of regime in some North African countries, prove that the topic, and the book under review, has never been so timely.
” –  Riccardo Sciaudone, European Foreign Affairs Review

“The collection ... makes a welcome contribution to a thin literature.” –  Urfan Khaliq, European Law Review, Volume 38

“ extremely comprehensive contribution to understanding this complex field!” –  Michel Theys, Agence Europe, No. 935
