17 June 2016 19:48 EC Needs To Understand All Members Are Equal to the Pacts

17 May 2016 08:43 Mitov: Western Balkans Should be Treated as EU Members

Enlargement needs a change and a serious one at that. This opinion united in Zagreb the foreign ministers of Bulgaria and Croatia. The Bulgarian Minister Daniel Mitov was far bolder in his vision, while his Croatian counterpart was more concentrated on sending messages to certain neighbouring st ...

21 April 2016 10:55 Hungary Tripped the EU again with Poland's Help on LGBTI Rights

7 April 2016 00:12 Member States Disagreed on EPPO Financing As Well

Despite all differences between member states another presidency in a row is working hard on finding a compromise on one of the most difficult European dossiers – the common European Public Prosecutor’s Office (EPPO) for dealing with European funds fraud. The Dutch Presid ...

24 March 2016 11:25 Will the Brussels Attacks Finally Unite Us?

The bombing attacks in Brussels of the morning of March 22 are somewhat different from the Paris horror just several months earlier. The blasts at the Brussels Zaventem airport and in the Maalbeek underground station, situated in the European district of Brussels, showed quite clearly that this ...

15 June 2016 10:39 Commission Was Completely Ignored by Council on EPPO

30 April 2016 14:20 Is There a Future for the European Project?

“Et tu, Brute?” would Julius Caesar ask Austria today, after, at the first round of the presidential elections, the far-right Freedom Party came back to the political scene with a bang. The party’s candidate Norbert Hofer came out first and the chances of him being the next p ...

19 April 2016 20:37 Dutch Referendum Proves Eurosceptics Wrong

On April 7th, 32.38% of Dutch eligible voters voted in a referendum for the approval or dismissal of the hard reached comprehensive trade agreement with the Ukraine, which precipitated that country's war with Russia. Out of these 32.38% of the voters, 61% voted against the ratification of the tr ...

31 March 2016 22:25 Mr Juncker, Didn't Obama Show You How It's Done?

On Wednesday, there was an event held in the EU, which usually doesn’t gather much attention, but the combination with other events made it attractive. We are talking about the visit of Kazakhstan President Nursultan Nazarbayev to Brussels. Yes, no mistake. We are talking about the ...

1 March 2016 09:19 Winter Is Coming to the EU

#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. The forecast for #Remain is as probable as that for #Leave.

Adelina Marini #EUref #Brussels is starting to organise to embrace the impact. Meetings in the European Parliament and the Commission are planned.
