We, Europeans – A European agenda for us all
30 05 2018
Report of the Friday Group hosted by the King Baudouin Foundation. Twelve proposals for a debate among citizens on democracy, asylum and immigration, social policy and industrial policy in Europe, transcending national contexts.
What is it about?
The next European elections will take place on 25 May 2019, and the European authorities have good reason to be alarmed by this fast-approaching date. Over the past five years, an overall sense that the European project has failed has been spreading among the population. And it is this alarming feature that has led to the creation of this road map for a new Europe. With one year to go until the elections, the Friday Group wants to open a debate on Europe that would transcend national contexts, to which European issues are all too often restricted. For this purpose, they shall focus on four key themes - democracy, asylum and immigration, and the Union’s social policy and industrial policy - and put forward 12 proposals and 22 action items.
