The map and the territory: Re-assessing EU law's embeddedness in European societies

Abstract : The Editorial takes stock of the current trends of inter-disciplinary scholarship on EU Law's infrastructural power. Keywords EU law, socio-legal studies, court of justice of the European union, infrastructural power, integration through law As I write these lines, the Advisory board and the Editorial committee of European Law Journal have just resigned in sign of protest against the claims of the journal's commercial publisher, Wiley, to have exclusive control over the hire and fire of journal editors. By their bold move in defense of academic freedom and autonomy, board members have reminded us all that journals are not random venues for the fluxes of professional publications. They are also a critical pillar for the dense yet fragile architecture of public knowledge that runs from universities and research centers to public libraries, students and the wider set of NGOs, representatives, and media. As such, they have a broad public value that needs to be acknowledged.
