Just over one year has passed since Emmanuel Macron gave a speech in the ostentatious amphitheatre of the Sorbonne University in Paris. He offered a vision of a sovereign Europe, endowed with significantly more powers, the better to weather the storms of the 21st century. Since then, progress has been made on defence integration, but on the eurozone and Schengen the results have been disappointing. However, though Macron has made mistakes, the lack of new political thinking elsewhere in Europe is primarily to blame.
