5 March 2018 14:14 European Parliament To Be More National or More European? This Is the Question

For the time being, European democracy remains largely national. This is, as briefly described as possible, the outcome of the informal EU summit, which took place in Brussels on 23 February. The result alone is not a big surprise, given the still strong Eurosceptic sentiment. What is surprising ...

12 February 2018 18:46 Brussels Finally Got the Western Balkans by the Horns

For the first time, the vision of the European Union for future enlargements acquires a complete and comprehensive look. The strategy outlined on February 6 is the first truly meaningful document that finally made a link between expanding outward and absorbing it inside. The document is as targe ...

4 December 2017 12:34 Can the European Parliament Become Really European?

The European Parliament is one of the main institutions of the European union, often boasting that its members are directly elected by the European citizens, ergo being the most democratically legitimate of them all.

19 October 2017 22:46 A Power Struggle in the EU

A change of the centre of power is cooking in the European Union.

3 October 2017 15:34 EPP's Bad Boys

Photos from Catalonia where the Spanish authorities used excessive force against those willing to participate in an illegal referendum in the autonomous Spanish province caused justified reactions of indignation that such a thing is possible in the European Union.

21 February 2018 14:28 February Eurogroup Opened the Season of Horse Trading with EU Top Jobs

The meeting of the eurozone finance ministers on February 19th could have passed completely unnoticed, even for the biggest Eurogroup fans, if it were not for the election of Spanish Finance Minister Luis De Guindos for vice president of the European Central Bank. The meeting did not produc ...

8 December 2017 14:14 The Foretold Election of Mario Centeno as Eurogroup President

On December 4, eurozone finance ministers chose their new president for the next two and a half years - Portuguese Finance Minister Mario Centeno.

15 November 2017 14:12 23 EU Member States Decided To Go for Deeper Integration of Defence

Eight years after the entry into force of the Lisbon Treaty, the EU will for the first time use one of its provisions, which lays the foundations of deeper integration in the area of defence and security - the establishment of a permanent structured cooperation in defence (PESCO). Although Proto ...

18 October 2017 17:44 Finally the European Prosecutor's Office Is Born

After four years of tough negotiations, the European Union has made a big integration step in an area which has always been a taboo - justice and home affairs. On 12 October, the justice ministers of 20 member states voted unanimously to create an office of the European prosecutor (EPPO), who wi ...

28 September 2017 17:38 Emmanuel Macron Put France Back into EU Driver's Seat

A leader has been born. For a very long time Europe has lacked leadership and vision, and for even longer France was the passive part of the Franco-German motor of European integration. But this has changed on 26 September, when the young president of France, Emmanuel Macron, turned a new page a ...
