What does the eu lack

What does the EU lack?

>Connection to the people. Public view is

hostile or distant:

>EU: Brussels is a monster, a behemoth

>Top EU leaders are unelected; Mandarins

call the shots

>EU is felt as a bureaucratic occupation

force


Constitution did the wrong thing

Constitution did the wrong thing

>to put the EU on a federal footing

> Political elite far ahead; public did not

follow

>Constitution strengthened perception

of ‘imperialist empire’

> Constitution turned EU into threat to

national identity


New treaty does it improve

New Treaty, does it improve?

>Does the text re-connect European

integration to the people? (not a

constitution, but unreadable and elusive)

>Does the Treaty streamline the institutional

framework? (size of Commission,

European Parliament, duplicity, agencies)

>Is mission of EU concentrated on limited

policy-areas? (CAP, Regional Policy,

Energy Policy, Immigration Policy)


Conclusion

Conclusion

>Bureaucratic machinery: streamlining

too slow; mission unfocused

> Enlargement: enlarge economic

concept EU, not EU itself.

> Estrangement from people: some

leading positions should be elected, like EU President, Commission President and Commissioners.
