The Common Agricultural Policy

The Common Agricultural Policy (CAP) of the European Union is the first community policy of the union and is being funded by almost half of the European budget. This is why the reform of this policy, especially in the context of the negotiations on the multiannual financial framework (MFF) for the period 2014-2020, is a long and very controversial process. In this subject euinside will follow the developments of this process and will present as much as possible view points and the interests of some member states.

#EUref A fateful referendum is taking place today in #UK about its membership in the EU. Fateful for both sides. The expectations are the outcome to be really close.

Alas, quite the opposite has been on the Continent and in the EU's periphery the fatefulness of the vote has been reduced to zero
