An informal discussion of the recent book ‘Crisis of the European Union’ by Jürgen Habermas, Emeritus Professor of Philosophy at the Johann Wolfgang Goethe University of Frankfurt, which debates the future of the European Union at a time when its very existence has been threatened by the Eurozone crisis.

 Drawing on his analysis of European unification as a process in which international treaties have progressively taken on features of a democratic constitution, Habermas explains why the current proposals to transform the system of European governance into one of executive federalism is a mistake. His central argument is that the European project must realize its democratic potential by evolving from an international into a cosmopolitan community.
