Do we want more or less integration in the EU? Both as lawyers and as citizens, we are all confronted with this question on a daily basis. Current challenges within the continent and at a global scale, such as growing inequality, seem to call for “more” and “less EU” at the same time. But does “more” integration necessarily mean legal homogeneity? How much regulatory diversity is possible and desirable among member states? The minor ‘Law and Justice in the European Union’ investigates integration and disintegration dynamics, their drivers and consequences in addressing several policy challenges for the Union and the world.. Among other challenges, it explores the various ways in which European Union increases and reduces inequality, with a specific focus on the EU private law as an agent of inequality and equality.
