In their book Democracy in Europe – Looking further ahead, Sylvie Goulard and Mario Monti call for a
democracy by the people and for the people. They analyse the current situation
and look “further ahead”. Valentin Kreilinger synthesises the main four topics
of institutional nature:


The role of the Heads of State and Government


“Rethinking the Economic and Monetary
Union”


How to manage differentiation (euro zone – EU27)


Parliamentary control by a “Parliament of the
euro zone” within the European Parliament

Based on a philosophical
framework around Alexis de Tocqueville, the two authors insist “that democracy [should]
no longer be sacrificed” (p. 22), but “democracy
is not just a value in and of itself, it is also the precondition for
sustainable action.” (p. 8)
