Communicating Europe

Journals and European Integration 1939–1979

Daniele Pasquinucci, Daniela Preda and Luciano Tosi

This volume is dedicated to the debate on European unification developed between the end of World War II and 1979 in two types of magazines. The first type of magazines are those not exclusively dedicated to the «European» themes, but particularly significant for the impact they had in the cultural-political debate and in the concrete unfolding of the process of European integration; while the second type are militant magazines, belonging to the European and federalist area, whose proactive role was fundamental both for the theoretical elaboration of the ideas as the basis of the future of the European continent, and for the practical propaganda. All these publications contributed in different ways to the spread of knowledge of European integration, of its implications and of its political, social and economic consequences. No less important – and this is the third type of journals taken into consideration in the book – has been the birth and development of magazines directly sponsored by the Community institutions, whose action was framed within a real «European communication», made by the EC institutions, particularly the Commission in Brussels, since their origins.

Crocodile, Lettre aux députés européens: Pier Virgilio Dastoli

Extract

Crocodile, Lettre aux députés européens

Pier Virgilio DASTOLI

En 1989, un Colloque autour de la question Europe, convient-elle? a été organisé à Turin par Giuliano Amato, Massimo Salvadori et Franco Momigliano. La réponse des rapporteurs, y compris Mario Monti professeur de l’Université Bocconi, fut presque unanimement positive.

Si on allait organiser aujourd’hui un colloque autour de la même question, le résultat final ne pourrait pas etre si favorable à cause des tendances eurosceptiques1 et surtout de l’évaporation du consensus des citoyens européens pour ce qui est fait (ou mieux: à cause de ce qui n’est pas fait) par l’Union européenne.

Je suggère que notre association universitaire d’études européennes décide de consacrer sa prochaine réunion annuelle à une question plus complexe ainsi formulée: «Quelle Europe conviendraitelle?» afin de donner la possibilité aux rapporteurs de nous présenter un éventail très large de réflexions sur l’avenir incertain du processus d’intégration européenne.
