V. Die bevorstehende EU-Zukunftskonferenz – Vorstufe für einen neuen Verfassungskonvent für Europa?

(Moderatoren: Michael Georg Link MdB, ehemaliger Staatsminister für Europa; Dr. Markus Schildknecht, Stv.-Landesvorsitzender)

Wir müssen jetzt starke Impulse für die Zukunft Europas setzen. Eine neue Europäische Verfassung kann der Grundstein für die Schaffung einer handlungsfähigeren Europäischen Union sein. In der Diskussionsrunde wollen wir darüber sprechen, wie ein solcher Entwurf aussehen könnte und welche Möglichkeiten eine Europäische Verfassung eröffnet.

Anbei finden Sie eine Präsentation vom Co-Moderator Dr. Markus Schildknecht, Stv. EUBW-Landesvorsitzender:

I would like to appeal to all federalists in the UEF to withdraw the proposals they have submitted for the conference on the future of Europe that will theoretically start in 2020. This document does not ask for a Constitution for the EU .... simply the maximum that is found is these sentences:
[*]The prospect of a European Constitution should be considered
[*]in drafting the proposals for a Constitutional Treaty

The federalists who, from the years 1940, 1950, 1980, 1990, fought for a Constitution that unfortunately was never achieved. However, the Federalists of the UEF in the Federal Committee of Madrid 2017 reached some hopeful conclusions demanding a Federation that would open the way for a Constitution. That is to say that the year 2020 is asked less than in the year 2017 ... that is not typical of the federalists at least of the federalists at heart

Therefore we must demand that the UEF reconsider its proposals for the next conference on the future of the EU. The UEF Board can simply present the conclusions of the federal committee of Madrid 2017 that I allow myself to recall, part of it, below:

19 June, 2017
Resolution on overcoming the crises and completing European political unity
Adopted by the UEF Federal Committee, 18 June 2017, Madrid

The uniting of Europe is a success story. The signing of the Treaty of Rome on 25 March 1957 in the Italian capital was and still is a cornerstone in the European integration history. For 60 years the European Communities and then the European Union have been guaranteeing that European peoples live in peace and under the rule of law after centuries of wars. On the occasion of the 60th anniversary of the signing the European Movement and the Union of European Federalists, together with thousands of citizens, demonstrated their support in powerful actions in Rome.

And there are other positive signs. The UEF welcomes the electoral success of the pro-European forces in Austria, the Netherlands and France. The populists and the Euro-sceptics have not prevailed. On the contrary, the election of Emmanuel Macron as President of France has shown that important elections can be won with a clear commitment to Europe.

On his first visit abroad, which led him to Chancellor Merkel in Berlin, the French President announced a new European initiative in close consultation with Berlin. The UEF supports these plans and calls on the EU-governments to accept this offer and start a new reform initiative. Europe needs urgent new impulses. The successful “March for Europe” in Rome and many demonstrations of "Pulse of Europe” in numerous European cities in the past months have shown that the citizens appreciate the advantages of Europe and that they want to continue the European path of integration

Uniting Europe was and still is the basic condition for peace, prosperity and progress of our continent. But the EU remains an inefficient and incomplete construction at risk of even collapsing if not completed without delay. It is still struggling against multiple difficulties that are threatening its existence and the political project of peace and integration that it embodies. The European Union has not recovered yet from the prolonged economic and financial crisis, nor have its Member States succeeded in successfully dealing with the refugees’ emergency, and the problems of both domestic and external security. After the close result of the Brexit-referendum in the United Kingdom for the first time in history a Member State intends to leave the Union. Anti-European, populist and xenophobe parties have been gaining ground in nearly all Member States, until the positive outcomes of the Dutch and French elections in the spring 2017, in coincidence with the pro-European citizen’s mobilisations and the Rome demonstration.

The immediate reform Europe needs
We therefore call on the EU institutions and the Heads of State and Government to approve a concrete
and ambitious roadmap in order to relaunch and complete Europe’s economic and political unity. The
existing Treaties must be used in full to promote immediate progress in important political fields:
• As the European Union has a single currency, the Euro, and as the economic and financial crisis of the
recent years has damaged European economy, so affecting citizens’ trust, the Eurozone should be
strengthened with a European economic, fiscal and social policy funded with a budget based on own
resources, allowing to modernise and relaunch the economy, finance productive investments, foster
competitiveness, promote sustainable development and employment, ensure social cohesion and
guarantee the future of the European social model.
• As the European Union has a common external border and ensures the free circulation of persons within
its single market, immigration and asylum policies should be managed at the European level, including
European border and coast-guard forces taking responsibility for that common external border.
• The introduction of the Spitzenkandidaten in the 2014 European elections should be
strengthened by the creation of transnational lists, each voter casting a second ballot for one of
these lists. A proportional system would be appropriate.
• As wars and instability afflict the regions around Europe, European defence forces should guarantee
Europe´s common security, help pacify our neighbourhood and contribute to the management of
international crises and conflicts. To proceed towards this goal, willing Member States should start
immediately a permanent structured cooperation within the European Union framework in line with the
provisions of the Treaty of Lisbon.
• As threats of international terrorism and international crime increase, they should be prevented through
European cooperation and strong European support, including mandatory exchange of information
among national police corps and the establishment of an EU Prosecutor’s office with a broad mandate.
• As millions of people flee from war and economic despair and try to land in Europe, the European Union
should develop and apply a common, modern and effective migration and asylum policy on the bases of
solidarity and fairness.
• As populism troubles European societies, the European Union should re-affirm and defend its common
values and take measures to protect and effectively defend democracy, tolerance, justice, solidarity and
the rule of law, within its territory and on the international stage.

A new phase of integration beyond the existing Treaties
Moreover it is necessary to launch, without any delay, a new phase of integration going beyond the existing Treaties in order to preserve and complete the Union’s achievements, prevent any institutional instability that the prospect of the United Kingdom exiting the Union may create,
and achieve full political unity on the basis of a Federal Constitution.

This new phase is needed to consolidate the economic and monetary union into a political union – so enabling the building of a truly European sovereignty, the creation of a federal system of effective and democratically legitimised levels of government while complying with the principle of subsidiarity. If not all Member States are prepared to support this new move and willing to proceed to closer economic and political integration, those Member States who indeed are should start without any delay and become the political core of a multi-tier European Union.

If the European Union is to thrive for the many years to come, it must pursue the paths of social cohesion, prosperity and political unity and solidarity, which can only be pursued by a democratic European government. As national democracies can’t govern political and economic forces beyond national borders, only a strong European government accountable to citizens and a fully developed European democracy would allow Europeans to control their own destiny. A federal Europe with strong democratic and efficient institutions is the only way to meet this challenge.

Europe will not be united if it is not democratic. And it will not be fully democratic if it is not a federation.
This is why we call for a concrete reform agenda including a structured dialogue of the Institutions with the pro- European civil society, a
dialogue that should start immediately and come up with both a bold agenda and a clear mandate for Treaty changes leading to a European Constitution.

Die Deutsche Einheit zeigt, daß der Wille auch politisch Berge versetzen kann..!!!

Liebe Föderalisten, auch wir können eine EU Bundesverfassung erreichen, wenn wir sie wollen...!!!

Beste europäische Grüße
