COMPARATIVE METHOD: A NECESSARY TOOL FOR LEGAL RESEARCH IN THE EUROPEAN UNION

E.D. Cosimo

University of Bologna (ITALY)
The comparative method is essential to understand the present-day. Today we are facing a new “renaissance” in comparative studies, due to the globalization of law. The European Union is a paradigmatic example of this. The aim of this paper is to analyze the influence of the comparative method on the creation and interpretation of EU legislation. Comparison can help the researcher to ascend from the initial level of exploratory case studies to a more advanced level of general theoretical models. The study will explore the ways to use comparison in studying EU Law in order to answer the question of whether a better understanding of the pluralism of sources of law due to comparison would enable a greater legal integration among Member States.
