European Council 17th June

A very interesting European Council is to be held on June 17, although shorter than usual (the summit of EU leaders). This time the summit will be just a day instead of the usual 2 days. However, it is expected to be much more tense. Not only because the Union is facing much more serious problems than those with the entering into force of the Lisbon Treaty or even those with its predecessor - the draft of a European Constitution. This is why the entire team of euinside is in Brussels and we will try and provide you with all the interesting issues and positions.

The #migrant route toward Europe has shifted through the Western Balkans, The New York Times reports. The newspaper quotes Hungarian authorities, who claim the shift of migrant flows is due to some extent to the many drownings in the Mediterranean, to the more centralised policy of the EU as well as the tightening of visa regime in Middle East countries. Another reason is that Bulgaria has significantly tightened border control, as well as Iran. Between January and June 79,000 people crossed illegally from Turkey into Greece, according to Frontex. Some of them continued through Macedonia and Serbia to Hungary. NYT writes that the shift is already causing sharp rises of the anti-migrant sentiments in the Balkans and is boosting nationalist parties euinsi.de/udqK
