The reflexion concerning the future of European institutions was initiated by a CDU-CSU document in 1994 which sets up a debate relative to the opportunities for reform during the IGC (1996). The European Union must be reformed to be efficient and transparent. It is both an essential and difficult matter to resolve as sovereignty conceptions differ from one country to the other. Some argue for more federal power whereas others want more governmental cooperation.
