A European commonality of destiny: Through social justice and strategic autonomy

Post thumbnail print


On its course toward integration, Europe has now reached a plateau of impotence. It no longer delivers what its citizens need, nor what third countries expect from a large and advanced economic and demographic power. Fundamentally, what is missing in Europe is a red thread to pull together separate key policy functions, so as to make the EU more predictable and accountable for citizens and for foreign countries. Europe today needs a reunifying concept to bring together the responsibilities of sustainable and fair development for all its Member States, and to design and implement a global strategy vis-à-vis the rest of the world.
