Book Launch and Debate La double démocratie. Une Europe politique pour la croissance

Institutional and Political Issues

Venue: FEPS Office  |  City: Bruxelles, Belgium

Speakers:

Pervenche Berès: Member of the European Parliament, S&D Group

Nicolas Leron: Co-author off the book, Associate researcher at the Centre for European Studies at Sciences Po, Paris and President of the Paris-based think tank EuroCité

Michel Aglietta: Professor Emeritus at Paris West University Nanterre La Défense and a scientific advisor at CEPII and France Stratégie

Moderated by Ernst Stetter, Secretary General of FEPS
Context:
FEPS and Pervenche Bérès are happy to present the new book of Michel Aglietta and Nicolas Leron. An opportunity to discuss about the Future of EU Finances. Indeed, cohesion, convergence, long-term forward-looking investment are at steak and there is work to be done both to make the  budget more performing, more in,nline with EU objectives, more apt to respond to crises ans sociétal transformations and lot lastly, more visible and valuable for European citizens.

Background:
What if the European crisis was first and foremost a crisis of perspective, the result of a specific perspective? The economicist perspective, which perceives, and thus somehow shapes, the reality of Europe through the sub-optimal achievement of the euro zone and the incompleteness of Economic and Monetary Union. The leitmotif, the ultimate objective, of all reforms will then be "stability". And not democracy. But by overturning economics through politics, by taking as a starting point the democratic question, and not the question of sovereignty, the European crisis can be seen in a different light: a crisis of public power. And the answer to be given will change focus: neither a leap towards federalism nor an exit from the EU, but a European political budget. It will also change its interpretation: a budget as the constitutive dimension of Europe as a genuinely public authority, the flesh and bones of democracy, and just not as an instrument for macroeconomic stabilisation. The overall vision that would emerge from this re-foundation of Europe would be a double democracy.
