23 September 2016 14:57 Not What EU, but Whose Is the EU. That Was the Question in Bratislava

Never since its creation has the European Union had to prove why it is a peace project, whose aim is to prevent armed conflicts between states in Europe. Some member states last year hurried to send their armies to protect their borders, including internal ones for the Union and Schengen, put up ...

15 September 2016 07:53 How Do We Bring Back the Soul of the EU in the Bodies of Member States?

Precise diagnose, but also fragmentation and lack of credibility in suggesting a treatment. This was the essence of the hour-long speech of European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker (Luxembourg, EPP) on the state of the European Union, filled with painfully boring cliché ...

9 September 2016 11:15 The Autumn of Referenda*

The previous political season ended with a referendum of large magnitude, which shook the entire European Union, but there are mighty aftershocks and individual local earthquakes expected in the new one, for there are three more referenda coming in seismically active areas for the EU and the Eur ...

8 July 2016 13:48 Brussels, Do We Know Each Other?

Can you imagine that the prime minister of a member state from the innermost levels of the EU – Schengen and the euro area – knows nothing of the European Parliament? Moreover, we are talking about a country, which has just taken over the rotating presidency of the Council, meaning d ...

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

The intergovernmental approach is winning in the creation of a regulation on the establishment of an European Public Prosecutor’s Office (EPPO), which would investigate crimes against the EU’s financial interests. Work on the project has turned in a Eurosceptic direction fr ...

19 September 2016 12:31 Rebellion against the Status Quo in EU*

Leaders of EU member states (without Great Britain) gathered in Bratislava for a summit, which brings the charge of setting the beginning of a redefinition of the European Union and its possible rebirth. Less than three months ago the 27 gathered in the margins of the June European Cou ...

14 September 2016 08:52 Commission's Politicalness Is Already Causing Anxiety in the ECB

Something unusual happened on Friday noon, heralding a very tough discussion on the future of Europe, which is already difficult. This happened following the informal meeting of the Eurogroup in Bratislava, which was supposed to send out the usual messages towards Greece on the implementation of ...

29 July 2016 14:42 The New EU Security Strategy Reveals Internal and External Insecurity

An important piece of news with a long-term horizon did not manage to push through the flood of short-term solutions that the EU is fully occupied with at the moment. There could hardly be any worse timing for the presentation of the long-awaited global strategy of the EU by High Repre ...

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

The hearing of Dutch Finance Minister Jeroen Dijsselbloem in the EP’s economic committee on Tuesday was planned to be smooth and boring. The purpose of the hearing was for the minister to give an account about what has been accomplished by the Dutch rotating presidency during the six- ...

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 ...

The Council of the EU has tasked the Commission to submit an opinion on #Bosnia and Herzegovina's application for EU membership. This is a sort of consent the European integration process of #BiH to deepen. This consent, however, comes with a condition. In their conclusions, the ministers ask the Commission to pay special attention on the implementation of the ruling on the Sejdic-Finci case. This was the first pre-condition for the continuation of BiH's integration process before the change of approach. In the conclusions, there's no single word about the upcoming referendum in the Republika Sprska this Sunday. You can read the full text of the conclusions here euinsi.de/xBR9

#euco Good day from #Bratislava! The sirens and the blocked city centre this morning created a sense of Brussels. The leaders of the EU member states (without UK) have gathered in the Slovak capital city to try to find a solution to the pile of pressing issues. The drama is that some leaders want an entirely new vision for the EU whereas others insist the summit to deal only with specific issues like security, migration and the creation of a defense union. The 27 are expected to tell each other honestly everything they were so far silent about for various reasons. To some, Brexit was the final drop, to others - it's the stubborn behaviour of leaders with illiberal views. The organisers' plan is the summit to draw a 6-month plan for restoration of the sense of unity. So, prepare for a long summit which might not end so optimistically as President Donald Tusk wanted before its start

Adelina Marini #BratislavaSummit Tusk: Bulgaria is a good example of the change of our approach. This means that all member states are ready to support Bulgaria for the effective control of the border with Turkey
