Towards a more democratic European Union

In the debate on the future of the EU, it is the first time since the signing of the Treaty of Lisbon that fundamental institutional issues – the sources of legitimacy of EU institutions and the European integration process – are under discussion. This policy paper provides an overview of the debate, places it within the context of recent proporals, and considers the legal requirements and political scope for action for their possible implementation.

Dr. Valentin Kreilinger formally worked for the Jacques Delors Centre.
