Opinie

  • Przed wejściem w bardziej szczegółowe rozważania o tym, jakiej Unii potrzebujemy, chciałbym podkreślić, że Unii Europejskiej po prostu chcemy. I nie chodzi tu o płytkie postrzeganie jednokierunkowej pomocy w tzw. modernizacji. Takie myślenie, wciąż widoczne w naszym dyskursie publicznym, może tylko zadziwiać po ponad 10 latach członkostwa. Kraj, który słusznie oczekuje podmiotowości, nie może swej roli definiować tylko w kategoriach biorcy.
  • A key challenge for the European Union today is the risk of institutional disintegration, whether in the political, economic or constitutional dimension. Because of such factors as the financial crisis, Brexit, and problems with border security and integrity, demands for a two-speed Europe have met with approval from some West European elites. 
  • The UK referendum, particularly the outcome, marked a radical watershed in the integration process. For the first time, a majority of the citizens of an EU country, and a populous one at that, had expressed a negative opinion of EU integration.
  • While just a couple of years ago one would have found it hard to imagine the Old Continent without the European Union, after Brexit this prospect is no longer seen as impossible in the long run. But if the Union survives, as I strongly believe it will, I am positive that the Republic of Poland will be part of it.
  • Before entering into a detailed discussion about what sort of Union Poland needs, let me first emphatically state that Poland does want the European Union. And I am not referring merely to a perception of one-way assistance with so-called modernisation. After 10 years of membership, one cannot help but be surprised by such thinking, still prevalent in the Polish public discourse. If we rightly expect to be treated as an independent political actor, we cannot define our role exclusively in terms of being a recipient.
