The Commission’s recent “White Paper on the Future of Europe” that sets out five possible paths forward for Europe

Rather than rearranging the deck chairs on the Titanic, the EU needs to address why the ship is sinking.

The choice will require EU leaders first to assess, with honesty and even bravery, where the EU is right now. 

They must be willing to call a spade a spade – or, in this case, to call the EU an intergovernmental organization in transnational clothing. 

Only after they recognize that this is a dysfunctional structure – because it allows both the EU institutions and member states to skirt responsibility by constantly pointing fingers at one another – can they pursue the needed rebalancing.
