the European citizenship can not be decreed…

The European citizen can only be born out of the conjunction of three factors:

  • the will of the national citizens responsible for becoming responsible European citizens (themselves and their own children);
  • the will of institutions and leaders to stimulate the development of a civil society*;
  • their ability to organise themselves so that their wishes become reality; that is to say, to master the development and implementation of new community policies and tools.

Franck Biancheri, in EUROPE: COMMUNUTY OR EMPIRE? Elements of reflection and principles of action for future European citizens: 1992, the Community at a crossroads. (1992, Editions Anticipolis)
