The sovereign debt and the economic crisis, the European Parliament elections’ debates andthe European Council designation of the proposed Commission President have clearly shownthe need for an in-depth reflection on the political and institutional system of the EuropeanUnion. EU institutions and Member States differ among themselves on the way forward to anew phase of European integration, while Citizens still have problems to understand the EUand wait to see if their voice counts in EU policy-making. In this context, should we reformthe EU current institutional system and on what points? What evolutions are necessary formore legitimate and more efficient EU and EMU? Do we need new practices, new tools, newtreaty(ies)?The 6th edition of the European Forum of Think Tanks, held by Centro Studi sul Federalismoand Notre Europe – Jacques Delors Institute, will bring together during a day and a halfrepresentatives from European think tanks, European institutions and national governments,for an in depth debate on the political and institutional evolutions for the EU and the EMU.Three round tables, punctuated by special interventions by key speakers, will enable us todiscuss these issues.
