We have attempted to link this group to theoretical approaches, discussing its institutional nature. We have also discussed it in relation to previous working groups. Our aim has been to inform about the work of this important group, and to discuss its proposals, which in many ways have been pioneering. We have also discussed the impact it has had and might have on the future of juridical integration within the EU. This should appeal to all European citizens as it more and more will affect their everyday lives. (Less)
