Reaction of Jeremy A. Rabkin to Andrew Moravcsik’s article on the collapse of the Constitutional treaty

I agree with Andy Moravscik that more “participation” is not, in itself, a cure for what ails Europe. I’ve always regarded the “democracy deficit” as a symptom rather than a cause of the underlying problems with political integration in Europe. And I can’t dispute Moravscik’s underlying point that people would argue less about the EU if they took less notice of it
