On 9 January 2020, a number of leading personalities in the European Parliament, including Guy Verhofstadt, Manfred Weber, Iratxe García Pérez, Ska Keller, and Helmut Scholz, in representation of the liberal, Christian democratic, socialist, green, and left-wing groups, submitted a motion for a resolution to the European Parliament recommending a conference on the future of Europe.
THE FUTURE OF EUROPE THE OPINION OF THE EUROPEAN UNION CIVIL COOPERATION COUNCIL’S MEMBER ORGANISATIONS
While the European Economic Community was characterised by successful economic and social development, the European Union was rather home to crises and unsolved problems. Of these problems and signs of crises, we consider the following to be the most substantial.
A brutal war is being waged in the European Union between the disciples of normality and abnormality, morality and amorality, restricted sovereignty and full subjection, i.e. between nation states and federalists.
The inadequacy of the current European Union is increasingly evident, as the recent story of the tragic vaccine supply mess has also shown. The need to reform it on a new moral, political, social and economic basis is increasingly pressing.
The European Union Civil Cooperation Council wants to contribute to the debate on the future of the European Union and for this reason organises a conference at 15-16 October 2021 in Budapest. The conference will address the problems of the current functioning of the European Union and will try to find solutions and to give alternatives.
