"EUROPE, A CULTURE OF SHARED CAUSES ?"

By the Council on European Responsibilities (COEUR)

...Many of the Union's citizens feel out of touch with a Europe that seems unable to tackle problems they see as more urgent than either EMU or enlargement. Moreover there is a widespread impression that Europe has no common political culture and no shared European causes.

THE EUROPEAN COUNCIL : RELAUNCHING EUROPE'S POLITICAL AUTHORITY

By the Council on European Responsibilities (COEUR)

The Community, in fact, had an objective limited to the solidarities inscribed in the treaties, and although we always thought that these solidarities would call for others and little by little imply the widest integration of human activities, I knew that progress would stop at the boundary where political power begins. At that point we would need to invent once more.' (Jean Monnet: Mémoires 1976, on the birth of the European Council)
