What did both the German and Swiss doctrines of constitutional law understand by democracy and neighboring issues, such as popular sovereignty, representation, and party state regime, over the past two hundred years? A key concept of Volker Neumann's investigation is the will of the people, to which all state authority must be traceable if the political system is to be a democratic one – something that is in principle also valid for the European Union.
