Institutional Affairs of the EU How Do We Bring Back the Soul of the EU in the Bodies of Member States?

Institutional Affairs of the EU Brussels, Do We Know Each Other?

A Strong pro-European Party Has Won Elections in Croatia

Croatia made an unbelievable U-turn in less than a year. In the beginning of 2016, when the coalition government of Tihomir Orešković was formed three months after the elections, it looked like another member state is being Orbán-ised. Almost nine months later the situation looks ...

Institutional Affairs of the EU The New EU Security Strategy Reveals Internal and External Insecurity

The Council of the EU has tasked the Commission to submit an opinion on #Bosnia and Herzegovina's application for EU membership. This is a sort of consent the European integration process of #BiH to deepen. This consent, however, comes with a condition. In their conclusions, the ministers ask the Commission to pay special attention on the implementation of the ruling on the Sejdic-Finci case. This was the first pre-condition for the continuation of BiH's integration process before the change of approach. In the conclusions, there's no single word about the upcoming referendum in the Republika Sprska this Sunday. You can read the full text of the conclusions here euinsi.de/xBR9

#euco Good day from #Bratislava! The sirens and the blocked city centre this morning created a sense of Brussels. The leaders of the EU member states (without UK) have gathered in the Slovak capital city to try to find a solution to the pile of pressing issues. The drama is that some leaders want an entirely new vision for the EU whereas others insist the summit to deal only with specific issues like security, migration and the creation of a defense union. The 27 are expected to tell each other honestly everything they were so far silent about for various reasons. To some, Brexit was the final drop, to others - it's the stubborn behaviour of leaders with illiberal views. The organisers' plan is the summit to draw a 6-month plan for restoration of the sense of unity. So, prepare for a long summit which might not end so optimistically as President Donald Tusk wanted before its start

Adelina Marini #BratislavaSummit Tusk: Bulgaria is a good example of the change of our approach. This means that all member states are ready to support Bulgaria for the effective control of the border with Turkey
