Federalism is at the heart of the debate of the EU ever since the very beginnings of the establishment of this organization sui generis, hybrid and innovative. The ambition of the founding fathers of European integration was well at the outset of a federal nature, not least in light of the Schuman Declaration of May 9, 1950. "By pooling basic production and institution of a new High Authority will conduct the first concrete foundation of a European federation ". For George Seals, a federation is defined because the separation principle implies that the State powers are divided between federal and state governments, the principle of autonomy or each level of government is autonomous and sovereign in its sphere of jurisdiction, as well as the principle of distribution that obeys the constituent entities are represented and participate in federal decisions, this through bicameralism at the federal state. The best example is that of the United States of America is a federal republic presidential bicameral. U.S. citizens are governed at three levels federal capital Washington DC from the state level and local level (counties, municipalities). So what are the ins and outs of the organization of the Union, and can they be likened to the American federal model? The latter can she claim to a federal development? Considering the EU as a federal state, one can see many similarities with the United States of America and in particular regarding the allocation of powers and the powers it has. However, some foundations necessary to establish a federal state seem omitted, including the absence of the Constitution. States remain sovereign, despite a transfer of powers granted to the Special Union.
