Compact Between Europe and the United States

To give some stimulus to the debate, a group of individuals of the Centre for European Reform in London and the Brookings Institution in Washington has drafted a compact between the European Union and the United States seeking solutions to most of the issues that have aroused controversy across the Atlantic in recent years.

It's an interesting, constructive and forward-looking document they have produced. It's well worth both reading and discussing.

It has my support although it does not have my signature. The reason is that it does contain some statements that I could not agree with.

But that's another way of saying that the debate must continue - it is of the greatest importance for the future.
