Abstract: The Belgian Constitution is quite silent about EU integration. Its article 34, however, can be seen as the constitutional foundation of EU membership. The Belgian Constitutional Court plays an active role in EU integration: it has developed two techniques for indirectly reviewing whether formal legislation respects primary and secondary EU law, it accepts obligations based on EU law as a justification for a distinction between two categories and it takes into account the procedural limits set out by the ECJ in order to maintain EU law's full effect and uniform application.
