Governing Europe. How to Make the EU More Efficient and Democratic

This book collects the contributions to the “Governing Europe” project, jointly led by the Istituto Affari Internazionali (IAI) and the Centro Studi sul Federalismo (CSF) in the framework of their strategic partnership with Compagnia di San Paolo-International Affairs Programme. The project analysed the current shortcomings and possible future developments of the European mechanisms of governance, putting forward policy and institutional recommendations aimed at improving the effectiveness and democratic nature of the European Union’s decision-making processes.
