The article develops constructive standards to implement a permanent seat
for the European Union in the UN Security Council in contrast to regular
rejections in legal scholarship. The author argues that a complementary UN
membership should be established, which would suit the basic structure of
the Security Council and the General Assembly. European Union law provides
suitable instruments for the effective exercise of the permanent seat.
Based on the example of German constitutional law, the state analogue
appearance of the European Union would have to ensure that its Member
States maintain their own capacity to act in the United Nations to an
impactful degree both in the process of disintegration and in a state of
reduced membership rights.
