European citizens initiative

Having been involved with the first ECI’s initiators (One Single Tariff), we have been invited by the European Ombudsman to submit our observations to the forthcoming reform of the European Citizens’ Initiative.

Action : The ECI has shown several major flaws over its first months of existence. In the United States, similar mechanisms have been existing for decades, with a well established legal framework. Comparing direct and participatory solutions on both sides on the Atlantic, we have identified best practices that could help fuel the debate during the upcoming revision process in 2015 and that answered concerns from the European Ombudsman.
