Should neofuctionalism (yes) or intergovernmentalism (no) be used by Europe to integrate its citizens?

  • Neofunctionalism should be used by Europe to integrate citizens instead of intergovernmentalism.

    Neofunctionalism should be used by Europe to integrate citizens instead of intergovernmentalism. Neofunctionalism reduces the importance of Nationalism and the nation-state. Neofunctionalism supports the theory that economic interests among the nations should be used to integrated the nations in Europe, whereas intergovernmentalism places emphasis on individual governments making decisions and preserves the nation-state and nationalist ideas. If Europe wishes to integrate its citizens it would be easier to do so using Neofunctionalism.

  • Europe to integrate its citizens

    I personally disagree that it should used by Europe to integrate its citizens.The commission proposal on payment accounts seeks further harmonisation in order to address certain concerns of citizens. In an age of intensified mobility for students, workers, businesses and capital across Europe, together with a society which increasingly purchases online, the banking sector should follow these developments and enable European citizens to fully profit from the internal market. In these regards the commission has proposed some possible ways to proceed.

  • Europe To Integrate

    I personally think that Intergovernmentalism should be used by Europe to integrate its system, because this is the system that Europe appears to be using, and it is a system that appears to be working. Forced neofunctionalism could backfire when there are disagreements in between countries. Allowing countries to integrate naturally over time, with the structure of intergovernmentalism is a much more practical approach.

  • Intergovernmentalism is best for Europe.

    Intergovernmentalism should be used by Europe to integrate its citizens. This is because a specific population is best served by a properly functioning economic engine. If a group of people are very poor, then the government can group them into a sector that costs the tax payers the least amount of money.

  • It should be a federation.

    Intergovernmentalism should be used by Europe to integrate its system, because this is the system that Europe appears to be using, and it is a system that appears to be working. Forced neofunctionalism could backfire when there are disagreements in between countries. Allowing countries to integrate naturally over time, with the structure of intergovernmentalism is a much more practical approach.
