The world is changing faster than ever. The choices we make today will define what the EU looks like ten years down the road. The Liberal White Book: Europe 2030 highlights the challenges that the EU faces and presents a range of policy options in the form of future scenarios: will the EU muddle through the next decade or will it change fundamentally to own its future? This publication is a point of reference for liberal policymakers who want to shape Europe’s future.
The role of ELF
The European Liberal Forum hosted a series of expert discussions with over 200 participants dedicated to the most pressing issues of the future, on the road to a Europe that is freer, fairer and more liberal. In this participatory process, contemporary issues were addressed in collaboration with ELF’s member organisations, who provide valuable insight from the national level.
The European Liberal Forum was the custodian putting together each chapter of the Liberal White Book with the highest involvement of stakeholders from European and national politics, academia, policy-making and civil society. We drew together these conclusions into a Liberal White Book Europe for 2030.
Liberal White Book has 8 chapters:
- Future Institutional Framework
- Sustainability and Climate Change
- Democracy and Rule of Law
- Internal Market & Trade
- Digitalisation, Connectivity and e-Commerce
- Foreign and Security Policy
- A Liberal Roadmap for a Resilient and Prosperous “European Monetary Union 3.0”
- Social Policy
This publication will help decision-makers to shape liberal discussions about the future.
