Notre Europe’s Contribution to the Public Consultation on the Future of EU 2020 Strategy
With the Lisbon Strategy arriving at its end, the Commission’s initiative to open a public
debate on the future “EU 2020″ strategy is more than welcomed. However, Notre Europe
considers that the Commission’s paper falls short in providing a strong foundation for a
thorough debate on the future shape of the EU 2020 strategy. In particular, there are various
points of concern regarding the diagnostic on which the new strategy is based, its content (in
terms of priorities and objectives), the instruments and modes of governance foreseen to
implement it, and the calendar envisaged to adopt it.
