This week ECFR published an important new policy report as part of the ongoing 'Reinventing Europe' project. 'A Europe of incentives: regaining the trust of citizens and markets’ by Mark Leonard and Jan Zielonka lays out how a more inclusive Europe could be achieved and how a Two-Class Europe can be avoided:
"Angela Merkel says that political union is the key to fiscal union, but Europe is becoming an "apolitical union" where elections allow citizens to change governments but not policies, and technocrats rule the roost. What is needed is a new reform agenda that is generous, flexible, empowering - a Europe of incentives." - Mark Leonard
Mark Leonard also launched a new fortnightly column at Reuters. Here is his first post looking at the dark side of European technocracy.
