*Strasbourg/Angelo Marcopolo/- The Beginning of an "UnPrecedented in History" process : "Citizens Negociating with States, MEPs, EUCommissioners", etc, will Start to be meticulously Prepared during the Next 3 Days, by Citizens' Panels, at EU Parliament in Strasbourg, during the Weekend : Friday to Sunday, 17 - 19 September 2021, as the Experienced EU Parliament's Press/Communications' Director, Jaume Duch-Guillot, stressed to "Eurofora".


- Several Dozens of Journalists are due to Carefuly Scrutinize a Long and Detailed Process, according to which, EU Citizens' Panels will strive to Build their Positions on the Future of Europe, Starting by the "Economy, Social Justice, and Jobs", Following with "Education, Youth, Culture, Sport", and Concluding, for this 1st Step, with "Digital Transformation", (according to a Draft Programme).


The Participants are mainly invited to Find concrete "Visions" for Europe's Future in those areas, Build operational "Topics" from them, and Conclude with what is called active "Streams", for the Plenary, apparently due to be Transmitted by  "Ambassadors", elected among them.


Their 1st Half of a Day (Friday) is mainly Dedicated into Meeting and Knowing Each other, as well as the Procedure, and Organizing. It's during the 2nd Full Day (Saturday) that Citizens' Panels are due to Focus on their proper Work, by Finding EU Citizens' "Visions", formulating "Topics", and preparing "Streams". Finaly, at a Last Half of a Day (Sunday), they are due to Discuss, Change, or Aprove their "Streams", as well as "Ambassadors", before a Final family-Photo (re-Named "Group-Photo", since there will be about 200 EU Citizens here, out of a Total of 800)...


------------------------


- In fact, what is "Essential, is that it's the 1st Time in History, for a Process of Discussions on Europe's Future, there is a Direct Debate Between Citizens  themselves, at the Beginning, and Afterwards between Citizens and MEPs, Ministers, EU Commissioners, etc. That is to say, it's the 1st Time that a Citizens' InPut is Accepted at the Institutional Discussions", Jaume Duch stressed to "Eurofora".


 - "And this will Start here, in Strasbourg, Tomorrow !", he Highlighted. In fact, "they (Citizens) will Start, at First, Discussing Between them, but Afterwards, when they will have Reached at Conclusions, they will Discuss also with all the Others, the Institutional representatives", he analysed.

- Thus, "During the Next 2 Months, they (Citizens' Panels) will Discuss mainly Between them. But Afterwards, they will Discuss also with the Others", (i.e. "Institutionals"). "It's all in a Draft Agenda, that you should ask to be provided with", Duch advised.


------------------------------


- I.e. it all Starts with the (Web) Platform, Follows with Panels of Citizens, and then at the Plenary, where it becomes Crucial, resumed, earlier this week in a Briefing (14/9/2021), Guy Verhofstadt, Head of EU Parliament's Delegation to the CFE.

- Meanwhile, 3 Interim Reports on Citizens' Proposals in the Conference's Web Platform are due to be Distributed this week, as well as on November 15, and before the End of the Year (2021), he added, (Hopefuly Not Blocking with an Intermediary, EU Citizens' Original Publications, visible at CFE's Website)...


Until Now, the Most Popular Issue seems to be "Democracy", (i.e. there where the Main "Eurofora"s Project has been Notoriously Published, Before being Supported, on main Principles, by Both EU and CoE MEPs, See: .., etc). Surprizingly, However, the 1st Question allowed to the Press came from ...Outside the EU (the BREXIT's UK), and from a ..."Financial" Paper ("FT"), Instead of an EU Human Rights/Democracy-focused Media... (it was about Hindering Victor Orban's Supporters to use the CFE's Website for Discussing their Ideas).


- However, at any case, "this is a quite Short Conference, since it would be Over at about March 2022", (with a Huge Pressure on the French EU Presidency to Act, then : i.e. rather Before the Final Round of the crucial French Presidential Election), Verhofstadt Warned...


- And, to a Question whether he wouldn't like to have, precisely, a much Longer EU Conference, particularly for People's Debates, he reacted by Pointing mainly to the Fact that, what is Important is that such a Novel Procedure, for the 1st Time, incites the Politicians of Representative Democracy "to Reply" to Citizens' critical Observations, Proposals or Queries : I.e. practicaly pointing at ..."Eurofora"s main Project's Idea about "Dialogue" between Citizens and Politicians Before Decisions !

    EU-educated charming young Chinese presence started to be felt in Council of Europe's corridors in Strasbourg at the aftermath of an Historic Resolution adopted by its Parliamentary Assembly in favor of opening the possibility to give China a special "Status" in the PanEuropean Organization.

    - "My proposal to offer to China an official status as "Observer", in short term, under conditions, was welcomed" by the CoE : "The road to Dialogue between China and the CoE has now been opened", declared after Strasbourg's debates and votes the Head of France's delegation, MEP Jean-Claude Mignon.

    "Neither complacency, nor a mere condamnation of China", but a "wise approach of a political issue of great importance", advised Mignon to all those who'd either overload claims on Democracy, Human Rights or Minorities, or close their eyes to anything, there as elsewhere... A balance which was not exactly followed during debates, contrary to Mignon's personal stance, which appeared rather even-handed.

    China is the only UNO Security Council permanent member which has not yet any status at the CoE, being still obliged to be represented in Strasbourg by a General Consul : USA and Canada, even Japan and .. Mexico, have already got a special Status at the CoE, following Strasbourg's decision, back in 1995, to counter-balance the accession of Russia (1996) by creating special links to traditional "Western-world" allies.

    All former "Socialist" Eastern European countries started to have relations whith the CoE through its former sector on Culture and Education, before becoming full Members of Strasbourg's paneuropean organization. Speculations were unfolding recently about establishing a probable concrete link with China through the topical issue of anti-doping in Sport, on the occasion of the 2008 Olympic games.

    More spectacular, a meeting co-organized a few years ago in Strasbourg, by EuroFora and the International Space University between EU Parliament's long-time Rapporteur for EU's Satellite Navigation system "GALILEO", German MEP Brigitte Langenhagen, and a group of postgraduate students, attracted special interest from Chinese experts, and was followed, in less than a month, by the anouncement of China's intention to support EU's GALILEO project with a participation of 200 million €.

    Compared to that, revendications of .. "Turkish" Minorities, by Turkish MEPs, this week in Strasbourg, spreading through a wide area extended ...from Greece up to China, appeared less worrying, than pittoresque...

    Meanwhile, France's political will to start involving China and other important countries in European and Global affairs was due to be raised also at the forthcoming G-8 Summit in Japan by President Nicolas SARKOZY, (NDLR  : confirmed on July 5)

Polls

2009 EU Elections were won by Parties against Technocracy and Turkey's controversial EU bid, while the 1999-2004 Majority Abstention trend decelerated. What should be done in 2009-2014 ?
