Sweeping Reforms Transform the European Union’s Decision-Making Process

The European Union is undergoing sweeping reforms that could drastically change its decisionmaking process. Proposed changes include the removal of the unanimity principle, transfer of powers from member states to EU governing bodies, introduction of new shared competencies, downsizing the European Commission, mandatory adoption of the Euro, and a simplified sanctioning process for member states violating EU values. These reforms, which have been narrowly approved by the European Parliament, have the potential to reshape the EU’s legislative landscape and alter the balance of power within the bloc.
