Report of the State of the Union 2012 speech given by European Commission President José Manuel Barroso in Strasbourg, 12 September 2012.
Europe must evolve to 'a federation of nation states', he said, as he pleaded for deeper integration among the EU’s 27 members and an overhaul of the bloc’s treaties to end its ongoing economic turbulence.
The speech also included proposals for a single European supervisory mechanism for European banks and to boost the role and powers of European political parties (see separate records in ESO for information on these aspects)
