This year marks two decades of monetary union, which is by any measure a momentous anniversary. Not so long ago, the euro area economy was scarred by a level of unemployment probably unseen since the Great Depression, and fundamental questions were being asked about whether the euro would survive.

One aspect that is not often mentioned since the European elections in May 2019, or since the appointments of the members of the new Commission in July and the formation of the new Commission in September, is that we are witnessing an obvious demonstration of the strength of the European institutions.

1989, as is well-known, is the year of the fall of the Berlin Wall, the end of the cold war, and the beginning, at least in hopes, of a new phase of European and world history. But the walls, broadly understood as more or less armed barriers to the free movement of people, have since then, according to a study by the University of Quebec carried out in 2016, at least tripled, from 15 to 63 on all continents, Europe included, involving 67 states as a whole.

The sole purpose of this paper is to formulate a specific proposal on the voting system for European elections that is compatible with the long-term vision of emergence of transnational parties. It will only deal with legal incentives that are considered appropriate, taking into account the particular context of the EU, as recalled above.

Chapter VIII of the UN Charter represents the legal basis for the involvement of regional organizations in maintaining international peace and security, a task which is (or should be) the main purpose of the UN Security Council. However, its provisions, as well as many other provisions of the Charter, have been largely disregarded throughout the Cold War period.

Immanuel Wallerstein (28 September 1930 - 31 August 2019) the political sociologist best known for his writings on the “world system” and I were friends in the mid-1950s. Perhaps not friends but at least both student activists in the world federalist – world citizen movement, especially in their international dimension.

There is now a broad consensus that if Europe is to move along the path to sustainable development, carbon pricing is needed which could both promote the global choice to limit fossil fuel consumption and create the conditions for reforms needed to endow the EU with an autonomous fiscal capacity.

Young Swedish activist Greta Thunberg’s statements – which have circulated around the world and sparked off the protest of hundreds of thousands of young people from hundreds of countries all over the world against government inaction on global warming – reminded me of Andersen’s Danish fairy tale about the emperor’s new clothes, in which the voice of an innocent child who dared to shout: “the king is naked” spoke the truth to the multitude of complacent or just gullible subjects.
