We started looking at the Danish economy at the beginning of the European Semester 2017 in the blog entry European Semester 2017 start: Denmark . I hope that the European Commission manages to inspire, and that politicians, civil servants, interest groups and activists with the right priorities use benchmarking exercises, such as the European Semester, in order to profit from an outside view and clear suggestions for reform steps and corrections. Assessment of progress In February 2017 the...

In the context of the EU’s single market strategy (link to a compilation of blog posts), I turned to European standardisation this week with a few entries on my Finnish and Swedish blogs: Eurooppaoikeus (FI): Sisämarkkinastrategian eurooppalaiset standardit (19 April 2017) Eurooppaoikeus (FI): EFTA ja Euroopan talousalue: eurooppalaiset standardit (19 April 2017) Grahnblawg (SV): EU:s standardiseringspaket (20 April 2017) Grahnblawg (SV): Europeiska tjänstestandarder (20 April 2017) Next a...

In the summer of 2014 Jean-Claude Juncker presented his agenda for jobs, growth, fairness and democratic change, as political guidelines for the then next European Commission.

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...

However, the AGS did not mention individual countries. Against the broad AGS...

This year has slowly gotten to its routines. Or actually all these routines I'm stuck with are the same ones I wrestled with in 2006 already... in other words: it's wake-up in the morning, to the office via shower and clothing-puzzles, in case the office hours fall short I get home around nineish after doing some sweating in the gym or in some workout class. Ya, that's my life. On weekends it's train time for either me or Olli, depending on the location of our weekend-plans. Last weekend it was...

If the treaty based aim of the European Union is a highly competitive social market economy, how do the political parties at European level deal with this objective? I skim a few documents with political principles from the main Europarties. The 2012 manifesto of the European People’s Party (EPP) begins by presenting the values of the party, then concludes: The only political system in which these values can thrive is in a pluralist democracy, in which citizens accept responsibility. The best...

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). In the Grahnblawg post Hopkok om EU:s framtid you can find direct or indirect references to 31 blog articles in Finnish, Swedish or English about the publications and the discussion, and in...

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...

So, the proverbial excrement has really hit the fan. Massive demonstrations around the Middle-East, a French editor was sacked for printing the cartoons in France , several Arab countries have withdrawn their diplomatic representation in Denmark, Palestinian Islamist groups have threatened Danes and Norwegians and they are declared valid targests as are any diplomats from these countries. Muslims in Finland have joined the boycott and condemn Denmark and Islamists in London have threatened...

Hello people. After returning to Oulu, I kept myself superbusy by working about 5 diaz a week, going to school, and playing basketball, while dedicating almost all of my free time to skyping with my better half. Needless to say, days and weeks went by really fast. Had I not had all these preoccupations, my head would have inevitably imploded from the exessive boredom that my dear old city exudes. Nevertheless, by early November, as days began to grow darker, I knew i had to escape the darkness...

As I ponder where to take this blog and what to do with it I read material about unschooling. My new guru is Dayna Martin, who has been on the Dr. Phil show to exemplify unschooling and has posted some videos about unschooling at youtube. Her site is Unschooling America . Her blog is also really interesting and full of life, at Sparkling Martins . She has been invited to be the keynote speaker at the first European unschooling conference , held in London in July. I'm seriously envious of this...

Tässä teille pitämäni puhe Nykissä täkäläistä aikaa sunnuntaiaamuna. Puheen osalta voin sanoa, että siitä valtaosa osa on runoiltu lennolla Helsigistä JFK:lle, loput lauantai-iltana ja Suomen valtion viralliset tahot eivät ole sitä nähneet ennen sen pitämistä, joten vastuu virheistä ja latteuksista on jotakuinkin yksin minun.

I found me a little efficiency a walking distance from work. "Me" here includes me and the hubby, who's moving in in a few months. "Little" means it is quite, but not too tiny. "Efficiency" is a local description for a studio on the smaller side: I'm not even sure mine counts as an efficiency, as it has a proper kitchen and a walk-in closet. "Walking distance" designates a European walking distance, about 3 kilometers, rather than an American walking distance, which equates under 1 kilometer...

As the editor of the English categories Liberalism and Libertarianism of the Open Directory Project (DMOZ) , to which among others the Google Directory is based on, I frequently receive feedback from American libertarians complaining, that libertarianism should not be classified as a subcategory of liberalism. The historical reasons why libertarianism is listed under liberalism are summarised here , but as I noticed that in the Globalization Institute Blog there were an article by Alex...




Tyyliä elämään -

A couple of years back I was lucky enough to get a job that required me to leave home and be at the local coach stop by 5:30 am every morning. 5:30 in the morning when nobody in their right mind is awake and the streets are mostly empty. Except for the long line of migrant workers from Poland queuing up for the same early morning coach as me. Mostly women with the odd man and mostly young women in their early twenties. Interestingly I never ever saw a single English woman among them, I guess...

Repeat after me kids: Internet is from Satan, and we shall eternally thank our Lord and saviour, the allmighty European Union for saving us from that abomination. Nevermind the freedom of speech and the freedom to use our own consideration, the allmigty EU shall forever guide us and tell us what to do and what don't do. Amen.

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)...

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...

Bigotry Unspecified -

Managed to take the girlfriend out to dinner last night and keep it almost civil too. Civil in the sense 'not to talk of things that upset either of us' (and 'not to mock the other diners and waiter too loudly to ashame the girlfriend'). Really nice and greasy foods. And wine. And even a shrimp-appetizer. Lucky we were too stuffed to eat dessert and I have money to feed myself this weekend. I also had an idea of sorts. The girlfriend and I have often been in disagreement of our ways to handle...

Yhtiökokous -

European Sports Betting Consultants Oyj:n varsinainen yhtiökokous on torstaina 8.11.07 klo 16 Helsingissä hot. Seurahuoneella. Yhtiöllä on vain 56 osakasta, joten ruuhkaa ei syntyne.
