Introduzione. Tempo di rilanciare il dibattito sull’Unione Europea (Introduction. Time for a new debate on Europe)

Carlo D'Ippoliti


This short note introduces the current issueof the Review, with the aim of opening a debate on Europe after the Brexit. Even if many saw the euro as a step towards political integration, there is now confusion and uncertainty over the final aims and objectives of the EU. Increasing popular hostility against the EU makes the current set-up one with which we will have to live for a while, before Treaty changes will be possible again. Alas, the current set-up is a union made up of sovereign countries competing under common rules, rather than cooperating under flexible arrangements.
