Европейский Союз и спорт Agnes TUKA H ead of Jean Monnet Centre of Excellence of Pécs associate professor for Department of Political Studies
Explanation of the title Barroso: This is Europe's moment of truth. Europe must show that it is more than 27 different national solutions. We either swim together or sink separately. (09.07.2010) 21st century-new challenges in the EU – Unpreparedness for the extensive enlargement – Deepening is being urged
Criticism of the integration Democratic deficit euro bureaucracy Un-transparent decision-making Enhancement of supranational organizations is unnecessary Revulsion of national states
Democratic deficit Difficulties in the preparation of decisions Un-transparency of screening alternatives Problems of comitology Lobbies - partly regulated exertion of informal pressure Inhabitants- distance of institutions – Incomprehensive terminology
Theoretical solutions System of open coordination Demand on multi-level governance Incitement of subsidiarity Treaty of Lisbon-appropriate answer? – What does the transformation of institutions entail? – Are the member state interests reconcilable? – Are the nation states able to exploit the new opportunities?
Old-new questions Will the EU become an important international actor? Are we able to find an answer for the post- crisis economical status? How far can the EU enlarge? Where are-are there any borders at all?
Provisions of the Conference Habermas: Most of the people living in the member states are pro-European, but politicians emphasising new initiatives and adequate interests are missing. Giddens’s 3 question: – Whether we wish to preserve the European values? – Whether we wish strong economy? – Whether we wish social Europe?
Let’s look for the answers together! Thank you for your participation I wish all of us exciting presentations and constructive discussions on behalf of the organizers and the Department of Political Studies
