A New Accord Among the Member States, the European Union, and Its Citizens


Gianni Bonvicini and Paolo Magagnotti also call for a new consensus to be established on European integration, although they reach a different conclusion. They consider the time to be ripe to take the next steps towards integration, after the pandemic: EU taxes; economic governance of the Union; and a real central government. If the substantial resources activated by Next Generation EU were used in a forward-looking manner, it should be possible to enable joint European debt to be taken up on a permanent basis.
