Summary/Abstract: Institutionalism, a doctrine that stems from the theory of the institution, formulated by the Maurice Hauriou1 at the beginning of the century, remains particularly stimulating for a theoretical analysis of the law, as an understanding of its social dimension and an incursion in the emergence and development of the institutional construct of the European Union2. The article attempts to analyze all the facets of institutionalism, at least, from a theoretical point of view and create the link between the European architecture and institutionalism as a doctrine. Like all significant concepts that contributed to the creation of the European architectural design, institutionalism has a genesis and evolution that can be traced back to legal doctrine. Therefore, viewing institutional idealism from a critical standpoint, and taking into account the contribution of institutionalism analyses, outside the sphere of the legal doctrine, we deconstruct the interest prompted by critical reflection on the theory and doctrine of institutionalism, as well as, its use.
