Abstract

In its "Lisbon Decision", the Federal Constitutional Court touched upon the question as to what extent legislation of Member States is "influenced, preformed or determined by Europe." Political science tries to measure this Europeanization by counting the number of laws from past legislative periods that originate in a "European Impulse" ("Impulse Method"). This method obtains its data primarily from the legislative documentation of the Bundestag. However, this documentation does not comprise all legislation based on European law. Furthermore, no statement is possible as to whether legislation that had been enacted in the past and which is based on a "European Impulse" is still in force today. Therefore, it is only possible to measure the influence of European law on current German law by comparing the number of current European legislative acts with the number of current German laws ("Competence Method").
