Submitted at Friday, 8. March 2019 um 09:03 Uhr, in category "Chapter 1 - EU Institutions and Institutional Reform" with No. 104. Author/s: "JOVD – Rutger de Ridder.

The Spring Congress may decide:

Resolution on the future of European unity

Noting that:

·         The European Union, as a cooperation of member states, has both intergovernmental and supranational aspects, which are both of vital importance to the continued success of the European Union.

·         LYMEC has always been in favour of strong cooperation and integration of the various aspects of member states as the means to an end, specifically peace and prosperity.

·         Cooperation is more complex between member states which have a significantly different history, economy, and culture.

·         The European Union is based on the shared values of solidarity, freedom and democracy. These values are the basis that binds the peoples of Europe together.

·         The European Union currently has twenty-seven member states, excluding the departing United Kingdom, in which the cultural, economic and political challenges differ.

Considering that:

·         A stronger European Union does not necessarily mean a larger European Union: the ambition of the European Union should be broader than only increasing the number of member states as the means to stand up against international competitors like Russia, India, and China.

·         The foundation of the European Union is that the Union serves the peoples of their member states, not the other way around. The European institutions are subject to the principles of subsidiarity: matters which can be left up to the individual member states should be left up to the member states.

·         The accession of new member states may not always be in the best interests of the Union as a whole or indeed the individual member states, as it often comes at a price.

·         The European Union needs to be wary of overpromising and underdelivering, as this may prove to be one of the deadliest threats to the continued success of the European project.

·         European integration is not complete and is executed poorly due to misunderstandings and misrepresentations of which tasks should be carried out on the European level and which tasks ought to be left to the member states.

·         The European Parliament cannot readily be compared to the national parliaments of member states, since it lacks full parliamentary powers.

LYMEC:

·         Calls for a stop to the accession of candidate member states, until European cooperation and integration has progressed to the level where the accession of new candidate member states can be considered.

·         Calls for a white paper on the core tasks of the European Union, where the core tasks of the European Union are to be those tasks which can not be executed on the national level, such as carbon emission rights, and the joint defence of European borders. 

·         Calls for a clear strategy on the integration of policies of member states on those core tasks which are necessary for the European Union to start underpromising and overdelivering for the peoples of Europe.

·         Calls upon member states to make the European Parliament a real parliament, including all parliamentary powers national parliaments have.

·         Calls upon member states to raise awareness of European institutions, like the European Parliament, among their citizens.

·         Calls upon the European Commission to present a policy which underlines the importance of intergovernmental cooperation between member states and reduces as far as possible the necessity for supranational aspects.
