Reform trilogues

It is impossible to claim to believe in European democracy and fail to demand real democracy, with real, open, accountable decision-making. Democracy is not a binary concept – some “democracies” have more or less open decision-making, more or less access to documents, more or less accountability. It isn’t good enough to acclaim the notion of “democracy”, it is important to demand that all of the elements are rigorously nurtured and protected.
