The web page for the Commission Work Programme 2018 (CWP 2018) offers access to the communication, the five official annexes and additional documents, but at this stage mainly in the three internal working languages of the Commission (English, French and German). At this point in time, the language choice is no wider if we access the official documents through the legal portal Eur-Lex. However, let us fetch the exact reference there: Commission Work Programme 2018: An agenda for a more united...

Still interested in improvement and governance of the internal market, in the entries Single Market integration 2013 report and Second Single Market integration report 2014 we saw that the Council and the European Parliament welcomed the integration reports, while calling for improvements.

Behind by design seems to lead the EU to the Sisyphean internal market and other policy areas, where the Juncker Commission is left to practise the art of the possible: Monitoring the European Commission’s progress . Having found no comprehensive internal market (single market) mid-term review process or document, we turn to elements illustrating mid-life during the current Commission term. Is the European Commission able to inspire the EU member states and the other European Union...

Taas on tullut se aika vuodesta jolloin Euroopan pankkiirit sekä eliitti kokoontuu salaisesti Bilderberg kokoukseen päättämään asioista, joista he eivät halua meidän tietävän. Kokous järjestetään tänä vuonna Dresdenissä, Saksassa ja kyseinen hotelli oli jo keskiviikkona eilen tiukassa armeijan vartioinnissa. Suomesta kokoukseen osallistuvat ainakin liikenneministeri Anne Berner sekä Sammon hallituksen puheenjohtaja Björn Wahlroos , joka muutti puolestaan muutama vuosi sitten...

By Omar Al Saadoon and Luay Al Khatteeb The concept of the "Rule of Law" is a very wide subject encompassing issues such as institutional reform, human rights and socio-economic issues. This post, however, is intended to give an overview of the legal concept of the rule of law comparatively speaking with common law jurisdictions and major countries of the BRICS. Introduction The underlying concept of the Rule of Law is not new to Iraq. Hammurabi's world famous Code of Law which dates back to...

In the preceding blog posts and in the latest entry Internal market mid-term we have looked for building blocks for an imaginary review when the EU Commission reaches mid-term. The purpose of this blog entry is to present the European Commission’s intentions regarding services in the 2015 internal market strategy, as an introduction to a coming article about the 2017 services package.   Internal market in services According to the political guidelines of the Juncker Commission , we need to...

(CNN)Everyone exposed to formaldehyde in some laminate flooring could experience adverse health effects, according to a revised report issued by several government agencies. The revised report, released Tuesday, also found lifetime cancer risk from the flooring to be higher than identified in the original version of the report. "The American Cancer Society estimates that up to 50,000 of every 100,000 people may develop cancer from all causes over their lifetimes," the CDC said. The original...

For an imaginary review, we have been looking at building blocks of the European internal market (single market) at mid-term. The blog entry Services in the internal market strategy prepared the way for the Services Package launched by the European Commission in January 2017. The press materials about this major element serve as your short cut or executive summary, before we embark on the scenic route. Services Package launched On 10 January 2017 the European Commission launched A services...

Exactly a year ago today we flew from Berlin to Tenerife to depart on a sailing trip across the Atlantic on the Finnish sail training schooner T/S Helena . The Grid had just reached 10.000 founding members, and it was time to charge batteries before the next big push towards the beta. I had sailed on Helena once before, on a weekend trip in the Turku archipelago . But crossing the Atlantic would be a more interesting adventure. For a month this two-masted tall ship would be our home on the...

BBC News , a bastion of political correctness, has gone out of its way and published the following article : Does diversity make us unhappy? By Mark Easton Home editor, BBC News It is an uncomfortable conclusion from happiness research data perhaps - but multicultural communities tend to be less trusting and less happy. Research by the Home Office suggests that the more ethnically diverse an area is, the less people are likely to trust each other. The Commission for Racial Equality has also...

Since there is just a little time, before the plenary debate about the future of Europe #FutureOfEurope and the state of the European Union #SOTEU address begins in the European Parliament, I am going to direct your attention to earlier blog articles on Eurooppaoikeus (FI), Grahnblawg (SV) and Grahnlaw (EN).

If we approach the 13 September 2017 State of the European Union (SOTEU) debate as seen by the European Parliament, we find the press release Let’s make the most of the momentum to shape an ambitious future , with a summary of the plenary debate, but enough links to keep us busy listening and reading for a long time. In addition to reading the brief notes about the speeches, I used the links to videos to relisten to the interventions by the president of the European Parliament Antonio Tajani...

EdisonLearning Inc., formerly known as Edison Schools Inc., is a for-profit education management organization for public schools in the United States and the United Kingdom. It was founded in 1992 as The Edison Project, largely the brainchild of Chris Whittle. The initial expansion of Edison included the involvement of Tom Ingram (campaign manager and chief of staff to former Tennessee governor and United States Secretary of Education from 1991-1993, Lamar Alexander), Benno C. Schmidt, Jr...

Dear friends, Evidence is emerging that traces swine flu to giant factory pig farms that are dirty, dangerous, and inhumane. Sign the petition to the World Health Organization and the Food and Agriculture Organization to investigate and regulate these threats to our health: No-one yet knows whether swine flu will become a global pandemic, but it is becoming clear where it came from – most likely a giant pig factory farm run by an American multinational corporation in Veracruz, Mexico.(1)...

Olen pariinkin kertaan kritisoinut toimimatonta huumepolitiikkaa. Poliitikot ovat valmiita puolustamaan lainsäädäntöä, joka ei näytä toimivan millään mittarilla. Jos mittareina ovat kansalaisten turvallisuuden ja elintason parantaminen. Ongelmakäyttäjien hoito ja kuntoutus jäävät veronmaksajien vastuulle. Maksajiksi jäävät kaikki muut paitsi huumekartelli, joka kerää kaiken rahallisen voiton. Tietenkin myös yksityistetty vankeinhoito hyötyy valtavasti huumelaista. Mutta...

Dili Days Decrease -

I haven't been updating my blog properly for a while, so I haven't reported that it was not only Dili in turmoil, but we had some terrifying incidents here in Helsinki too. These things happened around 1st of May celebrations, which are a really big thing here, but I missed them this year because of an irritating deadline for a conference paper, set very untoughtfully to 1st of May (no cultural sensitivity there!). Robin has been covering both Dili and Helsinki incidents in his blog, so look...

Posted by FSLabs @ 02:31 GMT When hackers get hacked, that's when secrets are uncovered. On July 5th, Italian-based surveillance technology company Hacking Team was hacked . The hackers released a 400GB torrent file with internal documents, source code, and emails to the public - including the company's client list of close to 60 customers. The list included countries such as Sudan, Kazakhstan and Saudi Arabia - despite official company denials of doing business with oppressive regimes. The...

I remember a time, when the General Report of the European Union was a reference tool of more than 600 pages, with exact information about procedures and acts adopted. I used to think that the General Report was a useful tool for students, teachers, researchers, civil servants, journalists, NGO and business people, as a well documented recap of recent developments in a certain policy area, before catching up on the latest events. The European Commission later discontinued the Monthly Bulletin...

One day before the EU27 Rome declaration I want to start this blog post by quoting two paragraphs from the 2012 Single Market Act II communication spelling out why even the incomplete European Union we have is better than secession for increasingly mobile people and businesses (page 9): The mobility of citizens and businesses is at the heart of European integration and the Single Market. The Commission will continue to work towards its vision of a Single Market where citizens, workers and...

The Single Market Act II had been anticipated by the European Parliament, the European Council and the Council (of ministers) of the EU.

In the Bratislava Roadmap the heads of state or government declared their determination to make a success of the EU at 27. The leaders promised to use the 25 March 2017 celebrations of the 60th anniversary of the Rome Treaties to round off the process and to set out orientations for their common future together. Having seen the auspices, the president of the European Commission Jean-Claude Juncker made a sober assessment. Instead of reform proposals, the Commission published a discussion...

Legal, political and economic scholars have encountered difficulties, when dealing with the treaty based aim of the European Union as a highly competitive social market economy. Negative integration in order to remove or to lessen obstacles in the internal market and external trade can be promoted by harmonisation and the Court of Justice of the European Union, flanked by rules to ensure fair competition. However, despite the kind words the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union (TFEU)...

Since we are trying to understand the European Union objective of a highly competitive market economy, aiming at full employment and social progress, it feels natural to take a look at the thinking behind a European pillar of social rights.
