This article discusses the SM decision of the European Court of Justice, concerning the right of entry and residence in the host member state of children raised by European citizens under the Algerian kafala. This case is not only about the right to respect for family life and the best interests of the child. It raises other important issues as well, such as the issue of communication and translation between different legal cultures in the field of family law, as well as the issue of the limits of the rights and freedoms attached to the status of European citizenship. In the particular context of Brexit, the case also sheds light on the on-going ideological struggle within British institutions concerning the place of Europe and European law. [less ▲]

The legal story of the Eurozone crisis is by now well known. Most commentators have focused on the impact of the crisis on the organisation of the European Union. However, the dominant Eurocentric discourse has neglected the important changes brought about by the crisis in the constitutions of ‘weak’ Member States—those who have received financial assistance. Domestic scholars are typically unable to offer a coherent account, let alone justification, of these transformations from a constitutional law point of view. Outside the domestic sphere, constitutional change within ‘crisis-hit’ countries has not attracted enough attention; it is considered not to be the problem, but rather the solution or an inevitable side-effect of the European developments. Still, it is precisely these ‘weak’ states that form exemplary cases for the study of how economic emergency and European integration operate in the domestic sphere of liberal constitutional democracies. The purpose of this paper is to shed some light on this ‘dark side’ of the Eurocrisis, through the study of a particular, albeit exemplary, national case: Greece. How was the Greek Constitution deconstructed by legal means? How do domestic actors justify the significant constitutional-political changes brought about by the Eurocrisis? How can we observe the loss of faith in the Greek Constitution? [less ▲]
