The October EUCO 2016: Welcome to the new EU-reality!

The 20-21 October summit, 2016, will be the first at which the member states will return to the already forgotten boredom of the European Council meetings that was a business as usual before the crises-era. In a Union that is stuck in long-term crises it is hard to outline one that can deprive leaders and journalists alike of sleep. The issues on the agenda (in the order of European Council President Donald Tusk) are migration, EU's trade policy, relations with Russia and in the same context the situation in Syria.

The big novelty at this Council will be the report which will be presented by the rotating Council presidency (Slovakia)on the implementation of decisions taken at previous summits.

The debut of the summit will be for British Prime Minister Theresa May who is expected to officially inform the 27 leaders of her intentions to trigger Article 50 of the Treaty of the EU, thus giving a start of the Brexit negotiations.

On the menu is also the issue of the referendum in The Netherlands at which the Dutch in April rejected the ratification of the comprehensive trade agreement with Ukraine.

Just as it seemed that the October European Council will be the first boring one for quite awhile, because there is no large crisis, which requires an urgent solution, and here comes the trade agreement with Canada, which turns into just such a crisis which (once more) the EU’s a ...

19 October 2016 22:17 Welcome to the EU of Returned Sovereignty!

The thing that got a little neglected at the June EU summit because of the referendum in Great Britain and the migrant crisis in the EU was the taking away (or perhaps the return) of powers from the European Commission in the negotiations of trading policies with third countr ...

In its latest #CVM report on #Bulgaria the @EU_Commission justifies the lack of progress with the political instability earlier this year. The government, however, is praised for its continuity and ambition for reforms and the responsibility for the non-implementation is transferred to the parliament. Bulgaria is still far from fulfilling the benchmarks can be concluded from the report, which you can find here euinsi.de/xN16
