*Strasbourg/Angelo Marcopolo/-
As it was Already Voted and Adopted by the EuroMetropole of Strasbourg Citizens' Assembly, on "Eurofora"s proposal, in the context of French President Emmanuel Macron's "Great Debate" as early as since 2019 (*), it's also an EU-Wide Polls from the End of 2020, just fully Published by EU Parliament and Commission on 2021, at the Eve of the Launch of EU's landmark "Conference on the Future of Europe" (2021-2022), scheduled on "Europe"'s Day, 9 May, here, (with Speeches from Presidents Macron, Sassoli, and Other Officials), and, precisely, on the Anniversary of the Historic Victory against Nazism, which opened an Era officialy based on Peace, Human Rights, Democracy and Rule of Law throughout Europe, (also with the Creation of the CoE, 72 Years earlier, since 1949, etc), revealed that an UnExpected, Huge Majority of EU Citizens seem to practicaly Back the Main Idea of a Previous Interaction, Between EU Citizens and Decision-Makers, before Measures affecting their Lives and/or Society at large might be taken...

- Total or Partial Agreement with such a stance was reportedly Endorsed by 91% or 92% of the People consulted.


- The Key-point was Not Elections, but "Decisions" taken by Public Authorities.


- It was clear that relevant Action should be taken mainly Before Decisions, (and Not  Afterwards).


- The Concrete Content of what exactly should be done by the Public Authorities was Not Specified, leaving a kind of Discretionary Choice for the most Adequate Moves, almost as in "Eurofora"'s proposal.


- But it was obvious that this concerned the Public Decision-Making Process, including some kind of Exchange or Dialogue, between Politicians and Citizens, ("take into Account Citizens' Voice").


- The possibility of a Legal Control by a Judge was left Open, as in "Eurofora"'s project, (where it may play a notable potential role).


- Ibid, for possible Legal (and Not Only Political) Sanctions, in case of Abuse.  


- The Integration and development of such Mechanisms in the System of  nowadays European Societies appears quite Easy, given the Availability of relevant contemporary Tools. 

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                   
- Curiously, that Poll was made between October and November 2020, But wasN't fully Published before May 2021 !


(+Etc.)

     The High-Tech, brand new Crisis' management Center (CMC) inaugurated Wednesday by French Minister Bernard Kouchner, fits well EU's Humanitarian and Security-Defence aims, revealed a gathering of the largest Group of MEPs (EPP) organised in Paris these days, to prepare the debate on French EU Presidency's priorities (July - December 2008), that President Nicolas Sarkozy will present next week in EU Parliament in Strasbourg.

        Due to face a large spectrum of Crises : from Humanitarian (f.ex. Natural Catastrophes, evacuation of Civilians or rapatriation of expats, populations exposed to Hunger and/or risky Sanitary conditions, etc), to various consequencies of Terrorist threats, Armed conflicts, or of Peace-keeping operations, etc, and joining Geopolitics with Diplomacy, CMC is able to deal with urgencies in real time anywhere in the world, by concentrating qualified Experts and impressive High-Tech equipment (i.e. Giant Computer Screens working in parallel, Visio-conferences, Satellite connections, etc).

        Kouchner stressed that "Humanitarian and Political considerations can co-exist in real practice, if each one respects its independence", and, speaking to EuroFora, underlined his intention to have special representatives in "Strategic" locations, creating a "Network", open particularly to European cooperation.

        - "We must fill the gap in Europe's Civilian and Military capacities", declared earlier at Matignon, French Prime Minister Francois Fillon, while EU Commissioners met with their counterparts among French Ministers.

        This point was at the focus of European People Party's "'Study Days" in Paris, from 2 to 4 July 2008, entitled  : "For a Safer Europe", with a central Debate on EU's Security and Defence policies, where EU Parliament's President, German MEP Hans Gert Poettering, French Minister of Defence Herve Morin, and the Chairman of EU's Defence Committee, MEP Karl von Vogaw, spoke before meeting with Sarkozy, Wednesday afternoon.

    - "We need specifically European systems, including, f.ex. Satellite networks, etc", stressed the experienced Chairman Karl von Vogaw, speaking after the meeting with President Sarkozy to European Journalists from EuroNews, EuroPolitique and EuroFora.
    - And there where "European forces are already gathered, (f.ex. in Cyprus, Balkans, Lebanon, etc), if new operations started, I'd prefer to see them under European command in Future", he added, in reply to questions on how to overcome problems raised by a 3rd Countries as Turkey.

    Vogaw presented earlier, at EPP's plenary, a comprehensive Report on EU's Security and Defence policy, with a strong High-Tech component (including Satellites, UAV, protected Telecoms, Strategic Air and Sea Transports, Space assets, etc), sharp references to Political will and Historic necessities, while also stressing that EU must overcome the divide between Civilian and Military research and activities, making "a close cooperation between Civilian and Military means" a "specific" mark of Europe.

    The experienced Top MEP, after helping to build the "EuroZone", as a long-time Chairman of EU Parliament's Economic Committee, has recently started to chair a brand new "Security and Defence Committee", aiming to build European Defence, as the 2nd task of his life, as he told earlier to EuroFora.
