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...

In the blog post State of the Union: public opinion I wondered at the usefulness of the latest Standard Eurobarometer 87 (fieldwork in May 2017), and the timing and value of the three reports of the special Eurobarometer 461 opinion poll purportedly dedicated to Designing Europe’s Future  (fieldwork in April 2017). Great if people value the European Union and its policy areas more, but why do the opinion polls not ask the citizens of the EU about the kind of union they want for the future...

The Elysée website of the French president seems to offer a single language choice: French. It may be an excellent reminder of the importance and glories of the French language, but for a president keen on proselytising in Europe it has some drawbacks. I checked Macron’s Initiative pour l’Europe speech many times for possible translations I could mention to the readers of my blogs, but only found the same English summary of A sovereign, united and democratic Europe with mainly the concrete...

The last evening in Pyongyang was ahead. We visited the big statue which is showing the happy reunion of two divided countries in the future... sooner or later. The Arc of Triumph looks a bit similar as the one in Paris. This one is the worlds tallest of course. Busy six days in North Korea was almost done. One more place... the school. This is probably not a typical school - or how do I know because I didn't see any other schools. At least great leaders had visited in this school like they had...

BOLIVARIAN VENEZUELA IN THE AXIS OF AGGRESSION For years Venezuela has been in the axis of systematic aggression and distortion by the media. The situation escalated yet further when the right wing coalition party MUD seized power in the 2015 elections after having won a clear majority of National Assembly seats in the country. According to President Nicolas Maduro the current situation resembles the spring 2002 coup attempt a lot. The same forces are attempting yet another coup. Because of...

It is possible to find overviews in Reader’s Digest style of the most notable Future of Europe initiatives . The annotated version of president Jean-Claude Juncker’s State of the Union 2017 address, with the sub-heading Proposals for the future of Europe that can be implemented on the basis of the Lisbon Treaty , demonstrates how the flexibilities of the EU treaties can be used to improve the effectiveness of European Union action, without embarking on a formal process of treaty reform...

The fifth among the ten priorities in the political guidelines for the Juncker Commission is a deeper and fairer economic and monetary union (EMU). The blog post Future of Europe: introducing deepening EMU mentioned the Five Presidents’ Report, officially Completing Europe’s Economic and Monetary Union , from June 2015. On pages 4-5 the presidents set out the basic elements: Progress must happen on four fronts: first, towards a genuine Economic Union that ensures each economy has the...

The blog post European Council: United we’re stuck? noted the effort of the EUCO president Donald Tusk to cut the Gordian knots among the heads of state or government (and more generally the governments of the member states), by a structured approach to difficult issues. At the same time, the entry doubted if a schedule for thematic meetings would be more successful now than at the time of Herman Van Rompuy. What if sub-optimal procedures and outcomes for EU citizens and enterprises are...

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...

The Juncker Commission has been strategic and steadfast in its work, matter of fact in its communication. In the blog post Commission Work Programme 2018 we looked at the CWP 2018 communication, which offers a State of the Union 2017 (SOTEU) update, useful references and an overview of the coming initiatives: Commission Work Programme 2018: An agenda for a more united, stronger and more democratic Europe; Strasbourg, 24.10.2017 COM(2017) 650 final However, for this EU “Navigation App” for...

Moikka! Huh, onkohan viime postauksesta tarpeeks aikaa, kun Bloggerikin näyttää ihan erilaiselta kun avasin pitkästä aikaa, apua :D Olin conittamassa Popcultissa viikonloppuna, ja tuli näpsittyä taas kuvia joita tulin tänne nakkelemaan! Valitettavasti selfiet jäivät vähälle (täysin olemattomiin) koko viikonlopun ajan. Älkää kysykö miten se onnistui. Varmaan oli niin kauhee hulina ja kiire, ettei vaan tajunnut vaikka oli kamera kädessä kokoajan. Olin kyllä muutenkin suht...

After the 18 October 2017 tripartite social summit the president  Donald Tusk offered an optimistic view on the role of the European Council (EUCO) for the future of Europe in general and the deepening of the economic and monetary union (EMU) in particular: From all quarters, there is now a new willingness to energise and enrich our work, draw on new ideas, maintain our unity and increase the dynamism of the EU. I will be calling on leaders to work together according to a strict timetable on...

Cristo si è fermato a Eboli: Why do I remember Carlo Levi and the saying “Christ stopped short of here, at Eboli” , when facing the conflict between a European level currency and national economic policies, as well as when following the many efforts to correct the design and to advance on the road to a robust, resilient and democratically legitimate euro area? In the blog post A better future for the EMU? we saw how the Five Presidents’ Report outlined the unfinished work and the road...

After the blog entry Reflection paper on EMU future we take a look at what has happened regarding the  priority ‘a deeper and fairer economic and monetary union’  during the first half of the European Commission’s term in office. In July 2017 the EPRS European Parliamentary Research Service published The European Commission at mid-term: State of play of President Juncker’s ten priorities (35 pages; available also in French), where the text on priority 5, A deeper and fairer economic...

In the latest blog post we saw that Emmanuel Macron proposed democratic conventions to relaunch Europe , at least from the start of the En marche ! movement. As we saw, he has returned to this idea a number of times, but the substance remained vague ahead of the president’s speech at the Sorbonne. The lack of clarity impacts the possibilities to discuss many issues related to the initiative regarding the role of EU citizens, the “democratic conventions”, so our next job is to check if...

Our latest blog posts have looked at the citizens of the European Union as passengers or participants on the EU reform and Future of Europe bus.

The blog post State of the Union: EU citizens, reform and future offered enlightened and responsible EU citizens references to the substance of the discussion about areas of EU reform and visions for the future of Europe. But we are hardly done with the European Commission’s State of the Union 2017 web page , or even the State of the Union 2017 brochure , where the pages from 97 to 101 offer a superficial glance at Citizens’ Dialogues. The Commission president Jean-Claude Juncker launched a...

Serendipity is stumbling across a Facebook presentation of Mathew Lowry’s blog post The limits of public participation in policy .

Macron had painted the democratic conventions as an essential tool to relaunch the European project. However, they...
