Summary 

The Destiny of Europe deals with conceptual ideas of Europe, its identity and challenges and tries to lay down possible alternatives for further European integration.

In the light of this work and one other work on the 'Philosophy of European Unity', both highly praised worldwide, Guido Westerwelle, at the time German Foreign Minister, and Michael Link, as German Minister of State for European Affairs, asked the author to participate in a German-led discussion on reform of the European Institutions. Germany at the time was particularly interested in reforming EU competences and concluding the negotiations on the competitiveness pact.
