Rethinking and communicating Europe
Together with partners and high-level experts from all over Europe, we make and promote innovative proposals to rethink the European Union. At the same time, we develop new tools to help better communicate Europe.
Federal Europe is unlike the United States of America. If the EU is to deliver more European common goods, it needs intensive vertical cooperation and separate standards for decision-making, administration and financing competences.
Public goods reflect a complex construct between the principle of solidarity and the principle of subsidiarity in European Union law. This study contextualises in detail public goods in European law and shows that they can act as a point of reference for the distribution of competences between the EU and the Member States, thus contributing to the upcoming Conference on the Future of Europe.
