Oxford University Press

This chapter discusses the possible roads to democratization of the EU that have been suggested in the literature by assessing eight different models of democracy such as federalism, parliamentary democracy, and majority rule. The ability of each model to encapsulate the EU system (descriptive strengths) is evaluated, then each is assessed for its ability to address the socio-psychological deficit of the union.

Keywords:   federalism, parliamentary democracy, consociationalism, majority rule, neo-medieval empire, networks, confederation, two-tier model, institutional reform, EU president
