To mark the ECR’s Autumn University meeting in Rome, a selection of ECR MEPs have drafted their thoughts on how the EU can face up to the challenges of the future.
At a time when European nations should be working more closely together to tackle serious threats and challenges, the EU has been divided by outdated and sclerotic institutions that place the utopian project ahead of the necessity to find common ground. Talk of EU reform has become fashionable across the European political spectrum.
However, for many other groups, this means further EU centralisation, not less. The ECR believes that we can reform the EU so that it better respects and delivers for the interests of each member state, not the interests of a European superstate.
