The traditional model of European integration based on uniform legislative standards has gradually evolved into a much more heterogenic landscape of European legislation. Most notably, it includes discretion for Member States and individuals. This seems in line with (or may function as an alternative to) the now prevailing EU integration model of Differentiated integration. This project explores: - which types of variation exist in EU legislation; - how these types of differentiated legislation balance Member States autonomy and individual freedoms and the effectiveness of EU legislation; - to what extent other issues, such as legal certainty, the rights of other citizens and the coherence of the legal framework may be at stake.
