Developing effective Lisbon Strategy NarrativesFunded under: FP6-SME
�Lisbon� is the ambitious policy initiative launched by the EU for the first decade of the 21st century, in order to enhance Europe�s leadership role in the world. Taking inspiration from a series of issue papers and briefs by the EU leaders and thinkers to refocus the Lisbon strategy, we discuss the possible role of Lisbon �narratives� to reinforce policy �ownership� among EU citizens and to overcome the present impasse in important sectors of the political establishment. Theoretical and practical difficulties of a Lisbon strategy and narratives are discussed in the framework of complexity theory and of the specificities of the European Union. Methodological suggestions for plausible, salient, legitimate and viable narratives are offered.
