Our Senior Research Fellow Jana Juzová, Associate Research Fellow Zuzana Kasáková and Head of the Brussels Office Žiga Faktor prepared the background material for the roundtable of the National Convention on the EU. The topic is "The European Political Community and its future potential". Three main questions are put to the roundtable: What potential does the European Political Community offer and how can it complement existing platforms and processes? In which areas of cooperation does the platform have the greatest potential and what should it focus on? What format and modus operandi would be most beneficial for the Platform to fulfil its purpose?
When initially introducing the idea of a European political community, Emmanuel Macron outlined the basic elements on which the initiative should be built. The hallmark was, above all, the assumption of shared democratic values on which political and practical cooperation in the areas of security, energy, transport, infrastructure, investment and free movement of people was to be built.
