    The paper is discussing the concept of shared sovereignty, coined by Jürgen Habermas, along with his theory of citizenship of the European Union. In particular, the Author of the paper makes reference to Habermas’ model of EU citizenship in the light of the current legislation, policy and practice. The reference is made in an attempt to release whether the current shape, or condition, of European citizenship corresponds to its conceptual content and to clarify the general direction for the change as it could be fully implemented. All those issues are mentioned with a view to answer a very fundamental question, namely how to ensure the democratic legitimacy of the European Union?

    Searching for a way to eliminate a „deficit in democracy” in the European Union is at the same time searching for the final political shape of the EU (finalité politique) and also for a way to legitimize the EU itself and its institutions as well. However, all action must be taken after some consideration and its is worth to follow the „Monnet method”, which advocates evolutionary change, rather than a revolutionary one. Democracy in the EU must be multilevel and must mirror the EU itself in that respect; it and needs to incorporate both direct participation of the EU citizens, as well as an active role of the bodies formed in general elections: the European Parliament and the national parliaments of the Member States. There is a vital need for a compromise that shall allocate the appropriate places for all of the participants in the „European game”.
