Book

30/04/2018

How can we motivate citizens to vote one year before the European elections? By involving them more firmly in a process of constructing Europe together, as Pierre Bauby proposes in this essay, which builds on the achievements in European integration of the last seventy years to define new ideas of building the future of the European Union that is feasible and wanted by its citizens. Through a process of constructing Europe together, citizens will give meaning to European integration; the European Union will be able to meet the challenges of the 21st century and regain a role in our uncertain world that is marked by an accumulation of financial, economic, social and environmental crises.
