Q: My name is Galen Guengerich. And I think that the very enlargement of the European Union, which has always had this debate between how much deepening—in other words, how much more authority and how much more you get involved in giving vertical authority to European-wide structures—versus enlargement, how much do you expand the frontiers. June 24, 2016 Sean Adl-Tabatabai News, World 12. And something—at least I think—I believe at the end of February they had only resettled about 500 of them, after several months. The “European Idea:” Historical Contexts, Debates, and Mental Maps on Europe as a Concept. – (Woodrow Wilson Center series) Includes bibliographical references and index. The notion of a more or less continuous crisis between 1917 and 1957 militates against the three principal explanations of European integration, all of which posit – or imply – that there was a fundamental shift in the circumstances of policy making around 1945. And this continued over decades, this kind of tension. With that somewhat grim background, Stewart might kick us off with just a few remarks about the history of the European idea and the European Union. I think in the past what we’ve seen are that the European Union has tended to confront a number of crises over the course of its history. In order to avoid the world being divided into two antagonistic blocs and to prevent the inevitably ensuing war, it seemed essential to establish a third European pole. For comparison, the EU-28 birth rate had stood at 10.6 in 2000, 12.8 in 1985 and 16.3 in 1970. Thank you, Madam Hauser, for hosting here. But I think the way—how we do it is very important, and I think there the preference should be that we should do it together with 28 as long as it—as it takes and when we can make some progress. Inspire, Debate, Engage and Accelerate Action | European Commission This book addresses these questions in essays ranging from ancient Greece to the end of the twentieth century. The European Union is a unique economic and political union between 28 EU countries that together cover much of the continent.The predecessor of the EU was created in the aftermath of the Second World War. Let’s be quick so we can get some more questions. This ‘European idea’ was a driving force behind the establishment of the European Union. And that might be due, to some extent, to enlargement. But in the meantime, the United States has not come up very often in this discussion of Europe’s future. So I think that we may—we may say that so far Europeans try to be good NATO members, and it’s enough for Europeans so far. Backgrounder And that’s why we observed the process of unification of standards in education and the labor markets, and it’s going deeper and deeper. Europe is made up of coffee houses, of cafés. And, indeed, it’s quite problematic for EU as such that it’s not enough, you know, to wait—waiting for developments and to take on some profits. And there is, of course, the question whether there is a mandate for the European Union to also interfere in domestic politics, and that’s quite new. I think the latest estimates are over 25 dead, almost 100 people injured. And there are many other examples when, in terms of rhetoric, Central European countries seem to be anti-European. And then we have a problem of other countries who also would like to follow U.K. in this regard, that they also would like to negotiate some special status. On the other hand, we may observe that these countries are very much interested in further integration or just rather to keep the European Union as it is now. I’d like to remind all the members that—and guests that this session is on the record. During the interwar period, the press kept discussing common European interests in the colonies (Greiner 2014: 300-323). Again, this is a particularly timely moment for that, so. As of 1 February 2020 , the population of the European Union was about 447 million people (5.8% of the world population). 1. The EU was created by the Maastricht Treaty, which entered into force on November 1, 1993. ISBN 0-521-79171-5 – ISBN 0-521-79552-4 (pbk.) MEAD: Well, a bit of an upbeat assessment. There are no airplanes until tomorrow. The EU’s common currency is the euro. The C. Peter McColough Series on International Economics brings the world's foremost economic policymakers and scholars to address members on current topics in international economics and U.S. monetary policy. When you take the eurozone crisis, there you have a situation where the members of the euro are—have a common central bank, and so they’ve given up monetary policy. But in reality, they play exactly in line with European interests. Many thanks to the Council on Foreign Relations for having me today. They discuss questions of politics, religion, commerce, law, language, literature and affectivity. MEAD: The comment—the question is really about the anti-liberal movement in at least some EU countries or parties, particularly in the East. Professor Belofs is the outcome of a Round Table in 1953 and a Study Group in 1956, and … I think that’s the most pressing matter. Germany’s the answer to the migration problem, to the Greek problem, to the euro problem. Thank you very much for that very helpful opening historical survey. Thank you, Walter. This can happen, of course, in the future, but there is already a very orderly way and provision in the treaties how this can be met. The European Union, the free market and the single currency were all plans originally dreamt up by high ranking Nazis, including Hitler himself. March 24, 2021 Nationalism – Europe. And there’s a big question as to whether now, in this current circumstance—the eurozone crisis, which continues to percolate along, and also the humanitarian migration crisis—whether or not that dynamic will actually persist. But I’m sure it will again be joined by France, maybe Poland, and hopefully also U.K. MEAD: Well, just quickly, if each of the two of you—Rita asked the question of everybody. It’s not because it’s a pro just for supranational, against governmental modes of policymaking. And I think there the EU now has to deliver and say we can make together a difference or, if we can’t do it with 28, then we must have different groupings of countries that do the job. It’s not the case of post-Soviet countries, where we have completely different situation, but this is the case of Central Europe and Balkan states. There’s obviously the question of Brexit. I do think that it’s harder to exercise—I think there’s been an absence of political leadership. So we begin, obviously, all of us are aware of the terrible news from Brussels this morning. It was even before the EFTA enlargement. And then, of course, we have, I would say, not a real crisis—that is Brexit, the threat to have this referendum on membership. But whenever things that impact directly on national electorates is concerned, then consensus becomes harder. But by going after those constituencies, what you do is you weaken any support that might be taking you in a direction of more of a federal Europe or more of a common European policy. I was wondering where that would come. And let’s begin here. The Wiky Legal Encyclopedia covers legislation, case law, regulations and doctrine in the United States, Europe, Asia, South America, Africa, UK, Australia and around the … I think we made far more success when playing with different roles. I also want to thank Rita Hauser in particular for all of—her sponsorship of this event over the years. By focusing on the constant tug and pull between state governments of member countries and EU institutions, the speakers aim at discerning the fundamental structural flaws at the core of the union and how the push for integration is jeopardized by the ongoing economic and migratory crises. No doubt Germany plays a leading role in the European Union. If so, what is it? While reconstruction was an immediate priority in the post-war period, many people advocated the creation of an autonomous European entity. Wolfgang Tillmans: Vote out populism. So Brexit, for you, is the number one of all of the crises. But maybe one of the questions is whether the environment in which all this is taking place is too rapidly changing for the European Union to really respond in a productive and effective way. The idea of a united Europe stretches back thousands of years. There needs to be a way to make sure that there’s some sort of bargain amongst the different members of the EU to actually apportion the burden of those that are eligible for refugee status throughout the European Union, which is something that—it really—it’s quite ridiculous. The question is whether, over time, that threat needs to be externalized rather than remain internal. But certainly both President Obama and Secretary Kerry have come out strongly in favor of Britain, for instance, remaining within the European Union. And after the establishment/foundation of the Community for Coal and Steel, it immediately slid into the next crisis with the failed treaty on the Defense Community and the Political Community in ’54. And yet the Eastern Europeans seem to be increasingly less committed to some of the core Enlightenment ideals behind Europe. Their authors come from different intellectual backgrounds and represent differing intellectual traditions. So all of us, I’m sure, are with the people of Brussels and Belgium in our thoughts. (Laughter.) European federation. And we now see that this might also have reached its limits to use differentiation as a means for more deepening. I’m in the religion business. This chapter explores the basic concept of Western European Unity. Net Politics. But in reality, they want further integration. And yet, they retain their independent fiscal policies, which obviously is—and often very wildly inconsistent fiscal policies. Indeed, there is a big, let’s say, contribution of Central European countries towards integration and create common energy policy. PATRICK: Thank you, Walter. The ideal of European unity, which had already been popularised by certain elite circles during the inter-war period, spread rapidly just after the Second World War. I think, yes, I think he’s absolutely right in this. I am particularly pro-European – no doubt this has something to do with my place of birth, Limburg, which lies between Germany and Belgium. ), OK? Today, however, European unification is no longer considered to be a step forward, nor for many people even a real necessity. These groups were fully behind the Stockholm Appeal, which the World Peace Council launched in March 1950 to demand a total worldwide ban on nuclear weapons. It’s a great privilege to be here. I think, however, what’s become apparent is that this irresolution, in a way, or contradiction between a supranational Europe, with authority going to Brussels institutions, versus intergovernmental vision of Europe, the tensions and contradictions are increasingly apparent. Betsey Stevenson, professor of public policy and economics at University of Michigan, leads a conversation on the new U.S. stimulus bill and how it will shape U.S. economic competitiveness. And so, when Angela Merkel threw open the welcome mat for refugees, what she was essentially doing was saying, look, this is part of being European—this is part of the European idea, is that we welcome people in distress. So it’s very important to distinguish the rhetoric. And this is extremely risky for EU as a whole. I do not subscribe to the interpretation that the European Union or European communities have always come out stronger of the crisis than before. Q: All right. I mean, after crisis 2008 and ’(0)9, when definitely many Europeans had some doubt about common currency, since 2013 we observe a positive trend, and more and more countries and citizens believe in the euro currency, especially those who adopted euro currency quite recently. European Union (EU), international organization comprising 27 European countries and governing common economic, social, and security policies. And the Council likes to end these meetings on time so that we can get through the day effectively. ), by Steven A. Cook And that has driven—in sort of what the French would call fuite en avant, has driven forward European integration. One of them would be towards more Brussels and more centralization in a way, and the other would be to move more in an intergovernmental direction. I’m a resident fellow at the Kennedy School. And that is something which, of course, is very much up to the member states to address it. So these countries try to adopt its own national foreign and defense policies to NATO standards, and then it’s relatively easy also to follow this path and integrate with the EU. So I would not place it in the same category. The subject is the idea of Europe. So you must have a Commission you can trust that looks for, let’s say, what is our common interest, and not only the interest of a few. But I think that there is also some clash between the vision of how Europeans would like to develop its own defense policy without America’s (leave ? This is an example of 2005 and referendum in the Netherlands and in France, and Dutch and French people voted against European Constitution. And I feel like we don’t see that now. Thank you, Council on Foreign Relations, for invitation. European law is … For example, where European Union is thinking about sanctions against Russia, we heard from Central European leaders some voices that maybe we should deal with Russia, we should not impose sanctions. The system has been robust and flexible. What’s going on here? Donald Trump? Europe – Civilization. And you might—and it’s interesting. Ditto analysis. And so we see the rise of an explicit anti-liberalism there, both on the refugee issues and other things. And the question is, where, then—you either have the choice of re-nationalization, and including throwing up borders, which of course was the response of many European nations, or you have more Brussels or more centralization. I think there are—there’s an agreement already to resettle 160,000 refugees from—which was only a small fraction of the ones that actually got into Europe. With respect to some of the problems that have been caused, I think that one could make—lead a chain of events in terms of U.S. policies towards the war in Syria and inaction at times in an attempt to sort of quarantine the problem and contain the problem on the borders of Syria, leading eventually to the eruption of the migration crisis headed into Europe. And differentiation, opt-outs, started there. For almost 25 years, the European Union has been a model of democracy, free trade, and fraternity between nations. I just wanted to pick up on the notion of a halfway house that you had mentioned. CWIEK-KARPOWICZ: OK. Well, indeed, common defense—foreign and defense policies, it’s a big failure of European Union. This course is a seminar for the bachelor program “Cultural studies” of the Europe-University Viadrina. So I think it’s a—it’s a—it could be very difficult for U.K., for European Union to adapt to this new situation. Because you mentioned a lot of contingent factors. From one side we may say that Europeans often vote against European Union. Being organised more efficiently, they could now bring pressure to bear on national governments. It’s a total disintegration. So you have huge, huge debates there. And this is something which European Union is trying to differentiate, migration problems and mobility. And in every crisis, or in many crises—from the origins of the European Union with the European Coal and Steel Community, to the launching of the European Economic Communities in the Treaty of Rome, to the movement toward the Single European Act in the 1980s, and then the Maastricht Treaty—in every case, there was a sense that unless Europe moved forward it would face increased crisis, and that the centrifugal forces would be too great. State your name and your affiliation. MEAD: OK, thank you. And I think that this is something which we achieve in our history, that indeed people can freely find jobs and change countries. And it’s obvious that between the European countries, many countries have their own national interests. And I think that it also have two side effects. And there are many examples when this country plays for EU interests rather than for German interests—sanctions against Russia, and involvement in the negotiations with Russia over eastern Ukraine. Am I correct that—from your remarks, all of you, that the United States is largely irrelevant to the kinds of problems that you have discussed and that you are quite pleased that the U.S. is not pushing any American proposals or solutions? Take a number. 3. The Idea of Europe : from antiquity to the European Union / edited by Anthony Pagden. And it seems to me that the structural nature of the crisis derives from politics. The European project's antecedents go back centuries, but in our times, was revitalised by the disaster of the first world war, the Versailles Treaty and its commitment at least verbally to the idea of national self determination, the experience of an ineffective League of Nations in the face of … And despite the fact that France, Germany, or Italy, they want to be in the EU, they still want to protect their national interest.
