Debate in the European Union on the Second Systemic Reform 2011-2012
Languages of publication
The debate on the second institutional reform of the European Union began towards the end of 2011. The purpose of the new reform is to complete the systemic changes of EU implemented by the Treaty of Lisbon of 13 December 2007. The first part of the article presents the standpoints of the most important states whose representatives took active part in this debate or participated in the proceedings of the Reflection Group on the Future of the European Union. The second part discusses the opinions of EU institutions, particularly the European Commission and the European Council on the proposed reform. The three reports of Herman Van Rompuy prepared in collaboration with Barroso, Draghi and Juncker, which were presented to the European Council in June, October and December 2012 led to the development of a plan of measures aimed at completing the process of constituting an Economic and Currency Union by creating an integrated financial, budget and economic framework that would eventually overcome the debt crisis in the Eurozone. In turn the report of the Reflection Group on the Future of the European Union of September 2012 contained the postulate of a second in history, complex systemic reform of the entire EU. The idea of a possible transformation of the European Union into a Political Union has been postponed for at least a few years.
