Abstract: The chapter analyses the views expressed by the EP political groups on the future of Europe, taken specifically in the context of the Juncker Commission’s White Paper, as well as in the wider sense of their ideological views on the type of ‘Europe’ they envisage. The chapter focuses on the EP groups to be found in the 2014–19 legislature due to the fact that the principal debate on the future of Europe happened during this period. The chapter focuses on three resolutions adopted in 2017 as well as the EP’s reaction to the white paper, and outlines the support for and against ‘more’ Europe. The chapter concludes by affirming that the largest EP groups remain largely in favour of ‘more’ Europe but that the EP elections of 2019 may result in a parliament less united on the call for greater integration.
