The system of sources of communitary law, in the context of the European Union, has been traditionally criticized because of the so-called democratic deficit, due to the scarce participation that representatives of European citizens have had in the creation of rulings and directives. However, the author argues that the European Union does not reproduce (nor can it reproduce) the national democratic model. Because of this, to explain and to analyze the sources of law of communitary law and its relation to national systems, new legal categories are required. This is precisely the goal of the essay, which focuses on the examination of three concepts: "constitutional treaty", "European law", and "European frame law".
