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

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

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 ...

28 May 2015 21:17 There Will Be No Overhaul of the Euro Area. Just Refreshment

Because of Britain, however, no decisions are expected that envisage in ...

On other issues, yes, indeed
