The Arcadian Federation: A Benchmark for the Further EU Integration

Emmanouil M. L. Economou, Nicholas K. Kyriazis


In the present paper we analyse the institutional set-up of the Arcadian federation, a Greek democratic federation, through an interactive analysis. We compare its federal political and economic institutions with the European Union (EU) in order to show if the ancient federation can offer us any institutional feedback for the further integration of the EU. We present its institutional (political and economic) set ups and then discusses differences and similarities. We have found that some of the basic Arcadian federal institutions could serve as a benchmark for the further promotion of democratic procedures and social cohesion in the EU.
