Participation of José Manuel Barroso, President of the EC, in the opening of the Brussels Think Tank Dialogue

José Manuel Barroso, President of the EC, participated in the opening of the Brussels Think Tank Dialogue entitled "State of the Union 2013; Federalism or Fragmentation: Spelling out Europe’s F-Word". The President made a speech on "The Essence of Federalism" on this occasion.
He notably highlighted that rather than a threat to Member States, functional federalism as developed throughout European history was also a guarantee for subsidiarity. The President added that he was deeply concerned about the emerging divisions: political extremes and populism tearing apart the political support and the social fabric needed to deal with the crisis; disunion emerging between the centre and the periphery of Europe; a renewed demarcation line being drawn between the North and the South of Europe; prejudices re-emerging and again dividing the citizens, and sometimes national prejudices that were simply unacceptable also from an ethical point of view.
