The initiative of the Robert Schuman Centre for Advanced Studies to organize a workshop in April 2015 and the publication of this E-book comes to a very crucial moment of the debate on EU own resources. The High level group on own resources, chaired by Prof. Mario Monti, delivered its preliminary assessment end of 2014 and it is organizing the meeting with the National Parliaments (June 2016) in view of the preparation of the final report to present to the European Council and to the EU Institutions. The e-book presents, in the different chapters, an historic overview and concrete proposals of new EU tax, where Member States have more difficulty to tap (Tarschys); a more political approach describing how the national fiscal sovereignty is compatible with the EU as an association of states (Fabbrini). A detailed assessment of potential EU taxes and their impact for Citizens (Schratzenstaller, Cipriani and Maurer), the contribution of the EU Institutions to the political debate on own resources (Vitrey) the means to communicate the reform (D’Alfonso and Montagnon) and to conclude an assessment of the possibility to achieve a reform and which model for a reform (De Feo).
