In search of European sovereignty

The most recent geopolitical, health, and economic events have made evident that national sovereignties are suffering a crisis. The EU has tried to respond in different ways, and the Next Generation EU is a perfect example of how it’s trying to build a piece of European sovereignty in the monetary sector. The same approach should be adopted for foreign and security policies, but also for other fields where it’s especially necessary that the EU finds its own economic and political independence. Given these assumptions, what is the road ahead?

Not a country for old leaders

Despite their greatest efforts, the generation of leaders who led the way for the European integration process was apparently incapable of creating a persuasive success-story that could stand the test of time. The new generations of leaders do not seem to share a European memory, which might be the missing secret ingredient for a long-lasting community. The U.S. experience suggests that it may not be enough to write a constitution or sign a set of treaties; perhaps what is really needed is to have something to remember.
