Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
The EU has definitely lost its way with respect to citizenship. I yearn to be a European citizen, but there is no concrete instance of EU citizenship to identify with.

The way forward is for the EU (the Commission, I suppose) to create or promote supranational instances which provide value for citizens, probably on a sectorial basis (for professionals, for associations etc) ... The example of the Erasmus program shows that it doesn't have to cost a lot, it just has to provide real utility in opening doors between citizens of different countries, that people wouldn't have thought of themselves, or for which the barriers are too high currently.

It is rightly acknowledged that people of faith have no monopoly of virtue - Queen Elizabeth II
