Future of Europe: a fruitful and effective citizens’ conference?

Published on :

First assessment for the Conference on the Future of Europe (CoFoE). This exercise in participatory democracy lasted a year and made it possible to involve citizens in the development of European policies. The delivery of the 49 chapters of recommendations took place on 9 May. The Council of 27 Heads of State and Government promised to follow up on this at the June 23-24 summit.

Started in the midst of a pandemic and overtaken by the war in Ukraine, this exercise lacked visibility: will it really be followed by effects and changes for the EU? Should we perpetuate a citizens’ assembly or change the treaties to further democratize our Europe?
