‘The Making of the Constitution for ‘The Federated States of Europe’ is a downloadable book from the Federal Alliance of European Federalists (FAEF) that faces the task of throwing away the undemocratic and ineffective EU-treaties and presenting the Citizens of Europe with a democratic and effective federal Constitution.
It could be a milestone for the future of Europe.
FEDERAL ALLIANCE OF EUROPEAN FEDERALISTS
The Hague, May 19th 2022
And again, Europe has landed at a decisive turning point. More than 75 years after WWII, the initial calm, resulting from cooperation within the European Union, is giving way to growing unrest. Its legal basis, a system of treaties between de EU-members, no longer works. That’s why Europe faces the task of throwing away the undemocratic and ineffective EU-treaties and presenting the Citizens of Europe with a democratic and effective federal Constitution.
‘The Making of the Constitution for ‘The Federated States of Europe’ from the Federal Alliance of European Federalists (FAEF), shows how European citizens and politicians can deal with the problems that the EU now is facing.
This downloadable book takes a bold stand: replacing all treaties by a constitution is needed to save Europe from being ungovernable in the nearby future. Member states already oppose each other on issues such as the rule of law, financial and economic policy, climate, energy supply, defence and foreign policy, migrations and refugees, healthcare. Conflicts on the question ‘Who is the boss in the EU?’ make some member states even threaten to follow the UK’s example of leaving the EU. The war in Ukraine allows the EU to hide its internal divisions behind a facade of artificial unity. When that war is over, that unity will probably disappear and the EU will face new financial-economic conflicts. It is conceivable that the EU could become an administrative vacuum, the perfect ground for the growth and consolidation of autocracies.
The book condemns the fact that EU politicians, in approaching these threats, deal with only one proposal: reworking the current treaties. They do not question the EU’s constitutional and institutional structure as the main cause of EU’s problems. Only a democratic federal constitution offers the solution to EU’s identity-crisis, is argued in this book. To make it easy for the EU’s citizens and politicians, FAEF offers – as a result of FAEF’s Citizens’ Convention – a concrete federal constitution, consisting of a preamble, ten articles and an explanatory memorandum. This material is further supported by a series of in-depth studies.
