The 1999 Crisis and the Responsibility of the European Commission

Does the voluntary resignation of the European Commission, which
occurred in unusual circumstances, annouce a renewal of democracy at
the European level ? Considering the results of the 1999 European
elections, this seems unlikely. The shift from a political responsibility
– not established in this case by the European Parliament, although it
is anticipated in the Treaty –, to a moral responsibility determined by a
committee of experts highlights the difficulty of determining the responsibility of an institution independent from the member states. The
fall of the Commission also reveals the contradiction between the desire
of the states to increase its tasks while not giving it additional means. It
also illustrates the difficulty of conceiving and building a governmental
function in the European Union.
