EU Reforms and the Nation

  • Tibor Palánkai
  • Gábor Miklós


The EU integration is in deadlock. We face several crises, like growth, regulation, climate, migration or cohesion. The measures of Euro governance consolidated the single currency, but the long-term stabilisation calls for the solution of the debt crisis or creation of a real community budget. At the moment, the EU has no agenda for any qualitative progress of its integration program, which would go beyond the present constructions. The popular support for any such program is just contradictory. It is an important development that in the integration processes the role of the nation has increased. [Palankai, 2018 and 2019] Instead of neo-functionalist spillover, we face the possibility of a post-functionalist backlash. All these make constructive reforms more than urgent and complex.
