While crucial developments of the EU constitutional structure are often associated with the interstitial change triggered by EU emergency management, the current EU emergency law framework remains largely understudied from a systemic perspective. The purpose of the research is to fill the definitional gaps in the current framework of EU emergency law and assess the legality and legitimacy of the EUs emergency responses in light of its nature as an international organisation with limited competences. Framing EU emergency law within the existing taxonomy of States consitutional approaches to emergencies will allow to include in the project a normative appraisal of the potential need for Treaty change.
