But today we need a broader perspective if Europe is not to decay into a mere market, sodden by globalization. For Europe is much more than a market. 1 Globalization and social solidarity Economic globalization, whether we interpret it as no more than an intensification of long-range trends or as an abrupt shift towards a new transnational configuration of capitalism, shares with all processes of accelerated modernization some disquieting features. Rapid structural change distributes social costs more unequally, and increases status gaps between winners and losers, generally inflicting heavier burdens in the short run, and greater benefits only in the long term (Vobruba 2000).

To date the problem of enlargement has failed to act as a lever for the solution of the more severe structural problems that emerge (i) from an asymmetry between a rather dense horizontal integration through markets and the rather loose vertical integration of competing national governments, and (ii) from a corresponding deficit in the democratic legitimation of EU decisions. Positive coordination So far, national governments have retained most of their competencies for cultural, economic and social policies, while they have transferred their monetary sovereignty to an independent and supposedly non-political institution, the European Central Bank.

This is a theme picked up in Chapter 9. While Möllers addresses the historical traditions that are conducive to constitution-making in Europe, Massimo La Torre critically analyses an important theoretical basis for such an endeavour, namely the doctrine of legal positivism. He attacks such a realist conception of constitution-making for being un-democratic. Legal positivism is about the mere 14 INTRODUCTION facticity of the founding principles of the legal order, and although it comes in different shapes, none of the variants grasps the normative core of modern constitutions, namely that they are based on principles safeguarding the individual.
