The paper attempts to contribute to the better understanding of how the centrifugal force towards weakening European integration has developed by identifying the EU-specific vectors of such gradient. We argue that disorientegration is an echo effect of a complex amalgam of mutually intertwined and interrelated mechanisms embedded secularly into our European integration process. The paper also addresses whether secular stagnation adds to that centrifugal force. The paper finally outlines at least six potential principles of reversing the European disorientegration by cultivating contingency governance.
