[en] In this chapter, I draw some lessons from the failed attempts of democratization of the EU
by proposing some guidelines that should be followed in order to envision a realistic deliberative
and inclusive transformation of the EU-decision making process. By following their spirits, I will
propose an ambitious renovation of the public consultation regime of the EU Commission, the
only institutionalized system of public consultation enshrined in the EU Treaties that however
most of the citizens are not aware of. This is an idea that I first presented in at the conference at the World Bank (Kies 2016) and that has since then been discussed and presented in the report commissioned by the European Economic and Social Committee (Lironi and Peta 2017), the European Parliament (Korthagen et al. 2018) and the European Court of Auditors.
