Contributions from the Spanish European Movement in the incorporation of Spain in the EU and on federal advances in the European Political Cycle 2014-2023
The political thinking of the Spanish European Movement and its action plans for the 2019-2024 political cycle.
This book brings together the main contributions contained in the books published by the Spanish Federal Council of the European Movement (CFEME) over the last four years on the subject of EU federal developments and the future of Europe. The aim of this book is to present the political thinking of the Spanish European Movement and its action plans for the 2019-2024 political cycle, focusing on the unique advances that have taken place in the European Union in a federal key. The authors are mainly part of the executive committee of the CFEME and some other are professors, politicians and prominent diplomats linked to the CFEME. A group of young people from the European Movement are also involved. The Spanish Federal Council of the European Movement is a plural, intergenerational association, made up of different types of professionals (although teachers predominate), interregional, and also international, as it includes colleagues from national sections of the International European Movement: Virgilio Dastoli, President of the Italian European Movement, and Yves Bertoncini, Former President of the French European Movement, among others. Finally, it should be noted that the articles featured include illustrious figures in European politics, who have held positions of high responsibility, such as Enrique Barón, President of the European Parliament (1989-1992) and President of the International European Movement (1987-1989); José María Gil-Robles, President of the European Parliament (1997- 1999) and President of the International European Movement (1999-2005); and Josep Borrell, High Representative of the Union for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy (2019-present). We also include a chapter on Spain’s role in the European Union since its entry into the EU in 1986, featuring prominent politicians, ministers, ambassadors and secretaries of state, among others, who enrich the vision of Spain within Europe, and not only the analysis of the latest events of the last legislature.
