    Abstract

    Is there a European identity? This is the question addressed in this panel dedicated to "European Identity." So, as I’m asked if there is a European identity, I will try to answer the question, "Is there a European identity in matters of institutional law?" But what does this question mean exactly? First of all, let’s remember that European law is part of international law. Let’s also remember that the European Community is an international organization just like NATO, the Council of Europe, and so on. If we want to see if there is a European identity in matters of institutional law, we will have to compare the European Union with other international organizations, and compare its institutional law with general international law. In other words, we will try to see if there are some specificities in European law in comparison to general international law. And we will try to detect if there are particularities in the European Union in comparison to other international organizations. Therefore, let’s have a look at five aspects of European institutional law: 1) the community legal order; 2) the community institutions; 3) the decision-making process; 4) the relations with the member States; 5) the relations with the sub-national level. After looking at the facts, we will try to draw some conclusions.
