A large pro-European majority emerged from the 2019 European elections, reflecting a reconfiguration of the European political landscape. This majority must yet be built up. The four main political families which are set to constitute it (EPP, S&D, ALDE, Greens) must overcome partisan rifts and come together to agree on a common roadmap to form a stable coalition to tackle the challenges of the next five years. In this brief, the Jacques Delors Institute proposes guidelines for this coalition agreement which would focus on four major political goals: (1) to respond to the environmental emergency, (2) to work towards a more competitive and fairer Europe, (3) to ensure security for all and (4) to step up democracy.
