Irish perspectives on European governance

No more integration without more representation !

Senior EU officials have just released a blueprint for another great leap forward in European integration, to be discussed by all 27 heads of state and government at this week’s summit meeting. Perhaps not surprisingly, this blueprint says little about the EU’s growing democratic deficit. Notwithstanding the urgency of the current crisis, it’s now high time for Europe’s citizens to cry “no more integration without more representation,” as I argue here. If there’s enough time to deliberate over technical aspects of economic governance, there’s enough time to beginning addressing the democratic deficit.
