By the multilevel governance concept we can see the European Union as a political system with interconnected institutions that exist at multiple levels with unique policy features. The White Paper on Multilevel Governance reflects the determination to "Build Europe in partnership" and sets two main strategic objectives: encouraging participation in the European process and reinforcing the efficiency of Community action. The fact that public interest in European elections is decreasing, whilst the European Union itself is largely seen as an asset in facing the challenges of globalisation, should prompt political action to be refocused on the principles and mechanisms of multi-level governance.
