Michael Zürn

If you conclude that European institutions should be more democratic, there are two possibilities. The first is renationalization, and the second is democratization. Renationalization cannot be a viable solution in a globalized world, because it is no longer globalized only by political decisions, but by the development of our technologies.

Michaele Schreyer - Lectures on Europe

The EU is a promise to its citizens of a life of democracy instead of dictatorship, with the rule of law instead of arbitrariness, with equal rights instead of discrimination, it is the promise on joint efforts to increase prosperity and social protection and it is the promise of long-term security for a life of freedom and peace.

Ulrich Beck

Europeanization does not mean that the nation-state disappears, but it does mean the metamorphosis of the nation-state or even more, the metamorphosis of the idea of the nation and the state from a national to a cosmopolitan design.
Ulrich Beck
