Event Description

The economic and financial crisis is also a political and institutional crisis of the EU system of government. The most significant decisions to face the crisis have been taken by ‘the governments of the Eurozone, outside of the framework of the Lisbon Treaty, without a democratic involvement of the European Parliament and, until now, without any politically
significant contributions from it.
The promoters of the event are convinced that it is up to the MEPs to formulate proposals to:

  • build an effective and democratic government of the Eurozone;
  •  reform the European institutions,
  •  provide the Eurozone with sufficient budget resources to promote growth and sustainable development,
  •  regain the trust and consent of the peoples to the European project, giving concrete institutional answers to the problem of democratic legitimacy when monetary, economic and fiscal decisions are taken at European level.

The goal of the event is to encourage the European Parliament and especially the Spinelli Group to take an initiative for a European Constitutional Convention for drawing up a new Treaty to be convened as soon as possible. A declaration of commitment to endorse the above-mentioned initiative will be submitted to MEPs.
