Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I think the only way to give the European project a new start is to create political movements/structures at European level. These movements/structures must be able to propose a common project for Europe. These movements/structures cannot be built on the model of national parties: so far, the attempts to do so (like the European Socialist Party or as far as I know, the Greens) have failed. On the other hand, they cannot be just loose networks (there are already numbers of them) because they should be able to promote a European political framework.  

It is an important issue to be discussed on European Tribune, as well as Whataboutbob's
Creating A New Left Economic Manifesto.

We should make these issues (and some others) permanent threads. Is it possible to create permanent threads?
