The Eurozone crisis has generated a number of structural reforms at the European level. In light of the democratic implications of some of these reforms, Andrew Duff and Guy Verhofstadt propose a new ‘fundamental law’ to replace the EU’s existing treaty framework. This incorporates a federal union in which the European Commission is transformed into a full democratic constitutional government and the European Court of Justice takes on the responsibilities of a supreme court. They argue that a European Union reformed along these lines would be more efficient, transparent, and accountable.
