The Hague Institute's Senior Researcher Dr. Joris Larik published an article in the latest issue of the renowned International & Comparative Law Quarterly (ICLQ) (Vol. 63, Issue 4 (2014), pp. 935-962) entitled “From Speciality to a Constitutional Sense of Purpose: On the Changing Role of the Objectives of the European Union”. Dr. Larik argues that while the goals of the European Union (EU) have become increasingly varied and ambitious, they have lost their role of delimiting the powers of the Union. Unlike the “tasks” and “functions” of traditional international organizations, they have rather come to instill a broader sense of purpose in the European polity.
