The June Summit of Ins and Outs

The agenda of this year's European Council is packed with issues that are full of tensions among the member states. One of the hot issues is the European Commission's migration agenda which has caused severe reactions among the member states, as some (Hungary) are already building protection walls. Another crucial topic on the agenda is the second four presidents' report on the future of the euro area. Precisely in the current moment of tensions over Greece the issue is not quite popular. The expectations are Greece's future to again take over the economic part of the European Council. And the third contentious issue is that on top of all this UK Prime Minister David Cameron will demand his proposals for EU reform to be discussed. There are other topics on the agenda as well, like the security challenges of the EU, fight against terror and the digital economy but they are not likely to cause any trouble.
27 June 2015 10:14 Exhausted and Weary EU Is Looking for the Smallest Common Denominator of its Unity

You know that moment of tiredness when you wish so bad for it all to be over, even something you have put hard work into for years. That moment came on Thursday night in the EU when the leaders of the 28 member countries negotiated, or rather, as sources claim, quarrelled fearsomely and not over ...

25 June 2015 19:12 Northern Eurozone Members Need to be Honest on Greece

The latest crisis with Greece will end as always – the next expensive loan will be lent until the next crunch, thinks Syed Kamall, leader of the third largest group in the European Parliament – the European Conservatives and Reformists. In an interview for euinside he stated that the ...

23 June 2015 13:12 The Major Eurozone Reform To Start after the UK Referendum

The new report of the five presidents – the bosses of the Eurogroup, ECB, Euro Summit, European Commission, and European Parliament – reheats some leftover dishes but has some new ideas too. The most important changes that would require opening up of the founding treaties are suggest ...

18 June 2015 12:44 The Fifth President

Just one week is left until the EU leaders’ summit this June when the second report of the four presidents is expected, although with much less anticipation. We are talking about the leaders of the Commission, ECB, European Council and the Eurogroup, who have been tasked by the leader ...

25 June 2015 22:00 Greece Needs More than a Deal

A mighty consensus is brewing in Brussels that even if a last-minute deal is struck with Greece it is not going to solve neither its problems, nor the Eurozone problems with Greek origin. While numerous Eurogroup meetings and the leaders’ summits continue, the feeling that more than a deal ...

25 June 2015 12:06 To Brexit or Not To Brexit

It looks like a heavy program for the EU summit starting today in Brussels. There is almost no topic on the agenda that does not test the stability of the Union – whether at its core (the Eurozone) or its entirety. Somewhere in between the quarrel over mandatory immigrant quotas and the ex ...

18 June 2015 19:21 Greece’s Final Countdown Has Started

Everybody has their eyes on the clock that dispassionately ticks away the time left for Greece to make a decision whether to stay in the EU or not. This is the prevailing attitude before the start of a fateful meeting of the Eurogroup (Finance ministers of the Eurozone) in Luxembourg today, who ...

#EUCO This afternoon, in Brussels, will begin the last EU summit this year. It will be the first that will work on Donald Tusk's Leaders' Agenda (details in the link below). In his agenda two topics are planned for the December European Council - migration and the future of the EMU. Both have already created strong tensions between Tusk and the Commission after the European Council president came up with documents of his own, which are much more reduced than those of the Commission, and reactions in the building across the street were furious. The leaders will mark the launch by 25 member states of PESCO at a special ceremony today. Leaders will be joined by NATO secretary general to discuss EU-NATO cooperation. Leaders are also expected to extend sanctions against Russia after hearing a report by Angela Merkel and Emmanuel Macron on the implementation of the Minsk agreements. Progress on the Brexit negotiations will be discussed on Friday. This is one of the toxic issues on the agenda. On Friday will take place also the expanded euro area summit, which is open for non-euro countries as well. Stay tuned for details and live updates throughout the day and tomorrow! euinsi.de/0Dcy
