New Pact for Europe: German country report


This paper is the second of ten national reports to be published as part of the New Pact for Europe (NPE) project. In the report, the German Reflection Group provides a comprehensive overview of its discussions on the key challenges for the EU and how to address them.

Although the German National Reflection Group sees the ‘current state of the Union’ as being critical, it is also convinced that the EU can still be a positive sum game for all. Drawing on the discussions held amongst the members of the group, the report proposes ideas and recommendations on how the EU should react to the main challenges in the years to come.
