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.

13 July 2010 12:20 Of people and whales ... and of the European Union

As euinside wrote several times so far, one of the major problems facing Iceland's bid for EU membership would be whaling.

23 June 2010 13:54 MEPs: EU leaders have failed the stress-test

22 June 2010 17:40 EU : EU - 1 : 1

While we were waiting for EU leaders to appear for the final press conference at the Council, some smart guy from the administration of the building switched the football match between Greece and Nigeria on the large screens in the room. Just in time to see Greece scoring. It is impressive that ...

29 November 2010 12:07 Iceland is no longer certain whether it wants to join the EU

25 June 2010 11:46 Iceland has a green light to start accession negotiations with the EU

It might sound familiar that at the European Council on June 17 in Brussels the news about Iceland being given green light to start EU accession negotiations got lost among the pile of other "more important" issues in EU leaders' agenda. This used to happen quite often to Bulgaria too when the c ...

22 June 2010 17:52 A European stalemate

There is a situation in chess, called stalemate when neither of players wins or loses. This is the situation the European Union has reached after decades of institutional, economic and currency building. And although it might have seemed that Britain was the only winner at last Thursday's Europe ...

#ECON Structural reforms should take place simultaneously across the EU member states, said @PierCarloPadoan, Italy's FinMin during a dialogue with the economic committee of the European Parliament. Currently he is presenting the priorities of the Italian presidency of the Council of the EU. One of the main pillars of the Italian programme for the next 6 months is structural reforms

#EUCO The odds are growing that #Italy's FM Federica Mogherini could be proposed to succeed Catherine #Ashton as EU's high representative for foreign and security policy. During the last EU summit when the heads of state nominated Jean-Claude Juncker as European Commission president, Italy's PM Matteo Renzi said he had no intention to nominate Mogherini because it was unrealistic to expect that Italy can get another top job since the ECB chief is an Italian (Mario Draghi) and Italy has just taken over the Council presidency. However, in the EU women are currently sought for the top jobs and nationality seems to be taking a back seat. Recently Renzi changed his position and decided to back his foreign minister. If she is to be approved, this will be another powerful post held by an Italian. In addition, we need to mention that an Italian is the chairman of the powerful economic committee of the European Parliament - Roberto Gualtieri. The heads of state will discuss the possible successors for Ashton and Herman Van Rompuy tonight at dinner. Stay tuned for live updates
