Recently the German Bundesverfassungsgericht (Federal Constitutional Court) knocked on the European Union's door with its impressive judgment on the Lisbon Treaty, recalling all the weight of the German scholarship tradition steeped in the German dogmatic flavor: the attention to the history of sovereignty and the attempt to catch all the European Union constitutional system's life revealed the systemic approach peculiar to the German dogmatic scholarship.

30 ECJ, Joined cases C-402/05 P and C-415/05 P, Yassin Abdullah Kadi and Al Barakaat International Foundation v. European Council, 2008, not yet published: “Fundamental rights form an integral part of the general principles of law whose observance the Court ensures. For that purpose, the Court draws inspiration from the constitutional traditions common to the Member States and from the guidelines supplied by international instruments for the protection of human rights on which the Member States have collaborated or to which they are signatories…. It follows from all those considerations that the obligations imposed by an international agreement cannot have the effect of prejudicing the constitutional principles of the EC Treaty, which include the principle that all Community acts must respect fundamental rights, that respect constituting a condition of their lawfulness which it is for the Court to review in the framework of the complete system of legal remedies established by the Treaty”.Google Scholar
31 “The term ‘formant’ comes from phonetics, and a legal formant is the body of rules and propositions that contribute to “forming” the legal system. Without establishing any hierarchy between them, the comparativist studies the relevance of the legislative, scholarly and jurisprudential formants, along with constitutional conventions and interpretative usages, etc. Naturally, the number of legal formants and their comparative importance vary enormously from one legal system to another.’ Alberto Vespaziani, Comparison, Translation and the Making of a Common European Constitutional Culture 5 German Law Journal 547, 563 (2008), available at http://germanlawjournal.com/index.php?pageID=11&artID=955. The term ‘formant’ was introduced by Rodolfo Sacco (Legal Formants: A Dynamic Approach to Comparative Law American Journal of Comparative Law 1 (I) (1991) 39; Rodolfo Sacco, Legal Formants: A Dynamic Approach to Comparative Law American Journal of Comparative Law 343 (II)’ (1991) 39).Google Scholar
