Abstract:The following bachelor-assignment deals with the failure of the European Constitution referendum in France and in the Netherlands and is named “The end of the European Constitution? An analysis of the French and Dutch referendum”.The research question is based on the political developments, which took place on May 29th and June 1st 2005, as the French and Dutch population rejected the European Constitution Treaty in a referendum. On the occasion of the results of these referenda it is doubtful that the European Constitution can be passed. Thus it seems to be very interesting to elaborate factors, which could be an explanation for the French and Dutch decision on the one hand and answer the question whether the European Constitution has been failed, on the other hand. According to the further development of a European unity, the European Constitution Treaty should build a new level of the European idea and should simplify the political work of the EU member states simultaneously. Furthermore the European Constitution should build the last pillar on the way to European equality. All these factors contribute to the scientific and methodological importance of this research.
