The speeches and the debate with the French MP’s are intended to cover more particularly the following questions:

1 – The missions of the EE (What can Europe do? What Europe do we want ?), dealing with the fiscal uinion, the banking union (and the banking supervision) and the economic union (economic policies and harmonisation

in fiscal, social and environmental fields) ;

2 – The institutional and democratic set up eager to correspond the best to these missions (both as regards the evolution of the powers and composition of the current institutions and as regards reinforced democratic foundations of the EU).

The involvement of national parliaments in this new governance, , together with the European Parliament, should constitute an important issue of the debate, following the resolution adopted by the European Affairs Committee of the French National Assembly.
