A European Foundational Assembly


Pierre CALAME, July 2016

Brexit has given rise to a radically new situation in Europe, calling for a radically new initiative – that of a European Foundational Assembly.

This piece outlines the purpose of such an Assembly and the processes involved, focussing on the following points:

  1. What is a foundational assembly, and what makes it possible, and necessary, right now?

  2. A two-phase Foundational Assembly, first local, then European

  3. Selecting and organising local assemblies

  4. How a European Citizens’ Assembly would be run

  5. Issues addressed by a Foundational Assembly

  6. The political, material, financial and human resources required for a Foundational Assembly.
