ECR European Tour: “Europe’s Future. A New Hope”.

9 December 2020

ECR European Tour: “Europe’s Future. A New Hope”.

A live broadcast from the Royal Castle in Warsaw.

The ECR Group in the European Parliament will imminently launch the European Tour on the Future of the European Union. The tour will take the form of a series of live broadcasts from 15 European capitals, in which citizens of our Member States will be consulted. The Future of Europe Conference, announced by the President of the Commission, is a challenge for all European political movements that do not share the Federalist vision. The so-called pro-European federalists tell us it is ‘more Europe or no Europe’.

We do not believe in extremes. There is a middle way. It is time to restore the ideal of a Europe that respects the sovereignty of our national democracies. It is time to rebuild our community of European states - a Europe of mutual respect, cooperation and solidarity. It is time for a new hope for Europe.

This is why the ECR Group is launching the European Tour; to consider more effective and durable alternatives to European centralisation. We want to show that a new way can save Europe from the clutches of a federalist ideology; an ideology that risks rolling back all the progress made by sovereign, national democracies working together over many years as equal partners for the common good.

The tour will debut with a live broadcast from Warsaw: “European Union 2.0. A programme for reform”. In 2021 the tour will stop in major cities across the continent to discuss Europe’s Future with politicians, academics and civil society participants. Our events will be live streamed, sharing the vision of a Europe that does less, but does it better.

More information will be shared on our Social Media Channels and on our website: www.ecrthefuture.eu. Join us to #ResetEU

Introduction: Our Vision @ 5 pm CET

MEPs Ryszard Legutko, PiS, (live from Warsaw) and Raffaele Fitto, Fratelli d’Italia, (live from Italy), Co-Chairmen of the ECR Group

Panel 1: European Values @ 5.15 pm CET

There is a tendency to conflate the European Union with Europe – but should we really? Does the Union really protect and nurture Europe’s heritage? Are the values it relies on really the foundational values of Europe itself? How can we make the EU truly European?

Speakers:

- Professor Chantal Delsol, philosopher, writer, Institut de France

- Professor David Engels, historian, Free University of Brussels (ULB), Institute for Western Affairs

Chair: Professor Zdzisław Krasnodębski MEP, PiS, Poland


Panel 2: Rule of treaties @ 5.45 pm CET

The EU Treaties are the bedrock of the Union. How can the treaties shine light on the evolution of the EU? How much attention is paid to the significance of the Law by the Union today, and does the Union itself respect the Treaties? How should the EU change to curb recent negative trends regarding the respect of the Treaties?

Speakers:

- Professor Magdalena Bainczyk, lawyer, chief analyst at Institute for Western Affairs

- Professor Tomasz Grzegorz Grosse, lawyer, University of Warsaw

Chair: Professor Zdzisław Krasnodębski MEP, PiS, Poland
