Europe as a political community must be founded on the common principle of political equality

Electoral equality

Equal fiscal policy

Equal access to social rights

The core issue of the Lab is the promotion of a res publica europaea, emphasising the European common good, and the transnationalism of all European policy, beyond the nation state. We are striving for a European Republic that adheres to the principle of political equality. 

Europe needs a democracy based on Montesquieu’s principle of the separation of powers, in which the legislative and executive powers are clearly separated.

Developing a transnational paradigm is essential to overcome nation-bound thinking and change path-dependent, ill-designed economic policies, in which the national economies are still perceived to be in competition with one another.

Nation is fiction, region is home.” The Lab encourages a model in which Europe’s diverse regions form the constitutive units of a European Republic, a new political entity built around the European common good.
