The European Union, an Ongoing Process of Integration contains 27 original contributions authored by prominent EU lawyers from academia and practice and concentrates on the three main areas of European integration that mark the career path of Alfred E. Kellermann: institutional and constitutional aspects (part I), general principles and substantive aspects (part II), and new Member States and Eastern Europe (part III). The contributions included in this Liber Amicorum vary from thematic in-depth studies to studies of a comparative nature. Their themes cover, inter alia, the structure of the Union according to the Constitution for Europe, the changes and challenges with which the Union¿s institutions are faced, including the creation of the positions of the President of the European Council and the Union Minister for Foreign Affairs, the future paths of flexibility (enhanced cooperation, partial agreements and pioneer groups), the role of national competition authorities and national courts under Regulation 1/2003, the constitutional preparation for EU accession in the new Member States, and the influence of European integration on the development of law in Russia. All contributions have been written in honour of Alfred E. Kellermann. Born in The Hague, raised in Switzerland during the Second World War and having studied and trained at Leiden University and at the European Commission¿s Legal Service in Brussels in the founding years of the European integration process, Doctor Honoris Causa Alfred E. Kellermann is a European by nature and vocation. For almost forty years, Alfred E. Kellermann has worked for the T.M.C. Asser Institute in The Hague. For many, he has become the face of the Institute in the Netherlands and abroad. This is the result of his work as a lecturer and consultant in EU law in countless short and long-term projects all over Europe, including Russia. Perhaps his finest accomplishment in raising awareness and expertise in the law of the European Union concerns the organisation of the famous `Asser Colloquia¿ on EU law and the publication of their proceedings.
