Roads out of Rome

  • The European Commission has dropped its goal of ever-closer union – at least for now
  • An endorsement of special-purpose unions is the key element in the latest White Paper
  • Flexibility may be the new organizing principle of an EU built on powers and coalitions

The European Union long ago mastered the art of scheduling as a method of simulating or sometimes even forcing progress. The March 25 Rome Summit, with its declaration marking the 60th anniversary of the treaty founding the European Economic Community, is one such occasion. Now that a core member state has decided to leave the union, the hope is to chart a course that will allow the remaining 27 to steer safely through months of political turmoil and fateful elections in the Netherlands, France, Germany and probably Italy. The battle will hinge largely over competing visions of Europe, with the outcome determining in which direction the EU will be pulled.
