IS THE POST-2015 AGENDA A POLITICAL PRIORITY?

How to engage citizens, politicians and political parties into the Post-2015  Agenda? Are the current issues International institutions and CSOs discussing, adequate and relevant enough to mobilize support within societies, media interest and political leadership? What can we learn from local and national Civil Society’ innovation and alternative experiments? Could they pave the way of a new and ambitious post-2015 agenda?

  1. Dear Olivier,

    Thank you for this excellent contribution to todays’ global challenges.
    I can only agree with most of what you wrote.
    My main reaction would be on the Lisbon treaty, which is accused of having caused a drawback in EU’s journey towards more integration and more global responsability. I think the picture is more complex than what you describe. As such, the Lisbon Treaty has also given a major push towards more democracy and participation by submitting major areas to co-decision with the European Parliament. Now it is clear that, in real terms, Governments decided to by-pass the “Community method” or the new rules by engaging in traditional inter-governmental agreements with even less democratic control. But stigmatizing the Lisbon Treaty would imply that more democratic rules imply less democracy out of fear that those rules would really apply…
    Therefore, I think we should continue fighting for more Europe instead of less, even though we know that this also means more exposition to powerful and unscrupulous lobbies…
    Yours friendly

    Patrick De Bucquois
