Schengen

2011 will remain in the European Union's history for the reforms of the two community symbols - the common currency area (the euro area) and the border-free area (Schengen). The migrant influx to the southern EU borders and the accession process of Bulgaria and Romania have clearly shown the need for reforms of the Schengen acquis. Like the economic governance, the Schengen governance changes aim at protecting the community interests at the expense of reducing the influence of individual member states.

2 March 2016 17:35 Eurozone and Schengen -- Two Parallel Realities, Crossing in Greece

12 February 2015 23:31 Boyko Borissov: If Minsk 2 Fails Next Thing Is War

The second Minsk peace agreement is so fragile, so hard to reach and will enter into force not today but on Sunday.

In #Croatia people vote today in what is described as the most crucial local elections. The outcome will determine whether the government will fall and the country will again go to the polls for a 3rd time in 2 years.

Adelina Marini #Croatia The battle in Zagreb is expected to reveal several things. The first is whether the current mayor, who was accused many times of corruption but never indicted, will win a sixth term in a row.
