European Council 28-29 June 2012: Now or Never

Once again, the European leaders are under global spotlight in an attempt to counter the crisis, this time really decisively and with determination. From the European Council meeting in Brussels on 28 and 29 June can be expected short-term measures and long term solutions, aimed at not just resolving the crisis but setting the direction in which the EU will develop in the future. The European leaders themselves admit that the timing is crucial. However, whether they will live up to expectations will largely depend on their ability to make compromises between the domestic political ambitions and European interests. In this subject euinside will publish articles, dedicated to the summit and you can read live coverage of the summit in our free talk corner on Thursday and Friday.

4 July 2012 08:41 Either We All Win in Europe, or We All Lose Europe

We have repeatedly written that one of the reasons why European citizens feel isolated from the European debate and do not understand the decisions taken at European level, is that they receive sometimes insufficient, but sometimes literally false information. The ones to be blamed for this are ...

3 July 2012 10:01 Eurozone, Britain and the Rest

29 June 2012 15:51 The Services Directive – in the Reality and in the "What If" Domain

Do you remember The Polish Plumber? Or, rather, do you remember the panic caused by the expected invasion and conquering of Europe by Polish plumbers? The character emerged in 2006 as a symbol for the effects of the enlargement of the internal European market in the services sector, proposed wit ...

27 June 2012 12:38 The European Parliament Is Competing with the Council

"Merkel and the others from the Council only talk, while we act".

5 July 2012 14:53 A Love-Based Marriage between Angela Merkel and Mario Monti

Ever since Mario Monti appeared on European stage last year to replace the inconsistent, arrogant and unmanageable Silvio Berlusconi, whose governance was pushing Italy fast to default, many things have changed. Yet with his first 100 days as head of a technocratic government in Rome, he managed ...

3 July 2012 11:58 Growth for All and All for Growth

Now it is certain that the talk about growth in the EU has no other purpose but to generate domestic political dividends. And this would not have been bad if too much attention was not paid to it as a single element of a more general picture - who is dragging the cart and why are not all draggin ...

1 July 2012 17:23 Ready, Steady, Go!

"The Eurozone is falling apart", "Europe is moving in two speeds" - in the light of these headlines, a country, which on top of this has the euro as its national currency, is starting official negotiations talks with the EU and is proud of that fact. Among all the key decisions on the agenda of ...

29 June 2012 14:46 No More Programme Countries in the EU

The eurozone bailout funds will be allowed to directly recapitalise banks and buy bonds of troubled countries, without an "adjustment programme" to be required, as before. The big news came in the early morning of 29 June as a result of lengthy negotiations among European leaders. "We agreed on ...

27 June 2012 10:10 The Eurozone Reloaded*

In 10 years the eurozone should have a finance ministry and a central budget, a common economic policy, common debt and common banking supervision in the face of the ECB. And all this guaranteed by the necessary democratic legitimacy, "based on the joint exercise of sovereignty for common polici ...
