Présentation du dossier : Une vie politique européene ?

Abstract : First lines of the presentation: The creation of a European Political life has long been presented as an objective for the integration of the European continent. Interstate relations within the European Community, and later the European Union, should not only be led by diplomats and bureaucrats, but by political leaders who are concerned with elections and ideology. The capacity of European Institutions to bring about a partisan pluralism was one of its original contributions. Beyond this, in the continuity of the Habermassian ideal, the goal was to constitute a public space at the level of the European Union where European citizens could discuss common affairs according to common terms. The election by universal suffrage of the European Parliament in 1979 and its gradual rise in power constituted one of the principal modalities of a voluntarist action aimed at creating a transnational political life.
