Steering Group

44 experts for an alternative European Summit

Just before the European summits, the Spinelli Group holds Shadow Councils gathering the members of the Steering Group. An obvious and simple observation is that today the European Council is opting for the intergovernmental method; this is of course a consequence of the situation that every Head of State or Prime Minister is defending their own national interest. It is the reason why the Shadow Councils held by the Spinelli Group try to do the opposite and launch proposals and alternative solutions based on the interest of the entire European Union and its citizens. It is a federalist and post-national Council working on European answers to European problems.
