Professor Nedergaard in Social Europe on how to reconstruct the EU

Professor at Centre for European Politics, Peter Nedergaard, can today, Wednesday the 15th of Marts, be found with a column in Social Europe. With the title ’Reconstructing The European Union’, Nedergaard argues, that the EU needs to reconstruct its entire system, if the crisis of the EU is to be dealt with. The EU needs to change from a one-size-fits-all model to a model of permanent flexibility, where member states can participate on different levels. Nedergaard furthermore stresses, that the EU is lacking legitimacy, and he highlights three factors important for creating the needed legitimacy. According to Nedergaard, the question is, whether the politicians are ready and capable to solve the problem of the EU.
