Communicating Europe

Journals and European Integration 1939–1979

Edited By Daniele Pasquinucci, Daniela Preda and Luciano Tosi

This volume is dedicated to the debate on European unification developed between the end of World War II and 1979 in two types of magazines. The first type of magazines are those not exclusively dedicated to the «European» themes, but particularly significant for the impact they had in the cultural-political debate and in the concrete unfolding of the process of European integration; while the second type are militant magazines, belonging to the European and federalist area, whose proactive role was fundamental both for the theoretical elaboration of the ideas as the basis of the future of the European continent, and for the practical propaganda. All these publications contributed in different ways to the spread of knowledge of European integration, of its implications and of its political, social and economic consequences. No less important – and this is the third type of journals taken into consideration in the book – has been the birth and development of magazines directly sponsored by the Community institutions, whose action was framed within a real «European communication», made by the EC institutions, particularly the Commission in Brussels, since their origins.

The Legal Instrument of the Communication and Its Incidence in Promoting the Unity of Europe: Giulio Peroni


The Legal Instrument of the Communication and Its Incidence in Promoting the Unity of Europe


The Category of Sui Generis Act and the Communication

The report intends to focus on the European Commission’s communications: a “typical” legal act of the Executive power1 of the European Union by which it announces its position on a particular matter or intends to make its own the legal opinions of the Court of Justice (ECJ) in a given area of EU law or to set out the way in which it intends to exercise its power of decision in particular sectors of European competence.2

The interest in this legal instrument goes far beyond the simple and clear linguistic consonance with the title of the Conference; in fact, the Communication is usually used by the EU Commission in order to make known its political vision about the complex question of the European integration process.3 ← 581 | 582 →
