10 December 2014 09:23 The New European Council President Donald Tusk Is a Fighter against Hopelessness and Monotony

The first week of change in EU is already a fact. As of 1 December, at the helm of the European Council - the most powerful and policy-defining body in the EU - has stood Donald Tusk, the former prime minister of Poland. His very first activities set the tone of a significant change of the post, ...

25 November 2014 13:55 Can We Trust the Member States for the European Prosecutor's Office?

The more the discussions in the various EU formats deepen on the European Commission's proposal for a single European Prosecution's Office, the more the disagreements and uncertainties. The Italian presidency aims to accelerate the negotiations in the Council but it seems that they will continue ...

14 October 2014 15:05 Tibor Navracsics Is the Elephant in EU Room

The European Parliament has created an odd precedent by half approving (not final) Hungary's candidate for EU Commissioner Tibor Navracsics, whom the new European Commission chief Jean-Claude Juncker entrusted the Education, Culture, Youth and Citizenship portfolio. And the inherent duplici ...

10 October 2014 18:21 Federica Mogherini Is the Right Person for the Job

Around the selection of a new high representative for the EU foreign and security policy the thought that this post is usually given to a person with no foreign policy experience frequently crosses one's mind. This was the case with the first high rep after the introduction of this post with the ...

15 September 2014 11:40 The Point of No Return

In the EU, there is also a process of realisation of the threat Russia represents. Alas, the divergence in the way the Eastern crisis is being interpreted is still huge in the member states. The good news is that this is a major pillar in the new European Council president's mandate. The bad new ...

25 November 2014 16:41 The Non-Confidence Vote Against Juncker's Commission - Great Interest but not Interesting

The first one hundred days not having passed yet and the first political European Commission was subjected to a non-confidence vote because of its President Jean-Claude Juncker - a former prime minister and minister of finance of Luxembourg several terms in a row - who is deemed responsible ...

7 November 2014 10:44 The First Political European Commission Will Work for Triple A Social Rating

On 1 November, the new and quite different European Commission has started work, led by the veteran European politician Jean-Claude Juncker. This is the date that marks the beginning of a huge change in the EU toward creation of genuine European politics. Should this be perceived in some member ...

14 October 2014 12:09 From Magna Carta to Indyref

A 307-years-old union was put to its biggest test since its inception but the British have again proved that they are the creators of the modern democracy. The referendum on 18 September on Scotland's independence was a true lesson in democracy, especially at a time when it is seriously threaten ...

16 September 2014 19:06 Finally a Strong and Government-like European Commission

Jean-Claude Juncker has proved, again, to be a master of compromise. The composition of the new European Commission, the distribution of portfolios and the new structure reveal the veteran prime minister's exceptional skills to manoeuvre among many and various interests. For the first time, the ...

21 August 2014 12:59 Is Angela Merkel the New EU High Representative for Foreign Affairs?

The EU is facing three huge foreign policy crises with potentially tragic consequences for security. Alas, these crises have again revealed the Union's incapability to act as a community. Until recently the main speakers on the Eastern crisis were the Baltic states, Poland and Sweden. On the cri ...

#FAC #Russia The FM of Belgium @dreynders expects the official position of #Greece on Russia. According to him, it will be good if the EU position on Russia remained united and a decision on more sanctions to be taken. The EU foreign ministers are having an extraordinary meeting today in Brussels to discuss further measures in the wake of the latest events in Ukraine (the rocket attack on Mariupol)

Adelina Marini @DLidington: The loss of life that we saw in #Mariupol was the worst loss of life with the single exception of MH17 that we have seen throughout this conflict. It is the EU duty to prepare options for the future including, I think it's now necessary, the possibility of further restrictive measures

#CVM The latest Eurobarometer poll on the perceptions of the Bulgarians and Romanians about the Cooperation and Verification Mechanism illustrates the growing gap between Bulgaria and Romania in terms of implementation of the benchmarks in the annual reports. Almost a third of the Romanians say the situation with the shortcomings in the judiciary is improving. The attitudes in neighbouring Bulgaria are quite the opposite. Only 24% are of the opinion that the situation with the fight against organised crime is improving which is down from 38% in 2012. 13% of the respondents said that the situation in the judiciary is improving. In 2012, their number was 33%. The complete Eurobarometer research can be found here euinsi.de/x6hr
