This chapter has two purposes: first, to provide an overview of the effects of populism on the EU legal system, and to make the argument that the EU legal responses to populism may contribute to crystallising EU constitutional identity. Looking back at the history of the EU, we find a number of events, which are linked directly or indirectly to a crystallisation of EU values. One might call them “constituting moments” in defining an EU identity and maybe even an EU constitutional identity. The chapter argues that the EU’s responses to the rule of law crisis form part of this evolution. The second purpose of this chapter is to turn the picture around and ask which effect the EU responses have had on populism, using Poland as a case study.
