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...

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. The ten priorities available in the brochure A New Start for Europe are: A New Boost for Jobs, Growth and Investment A Connected Digital Single Market A Resilient Energy Union with a Forward-Looking Climate Change Policy A Deeper and Fairer Internal Market with a Strengthened Industrial Base A Deeper and Fairer Economic...

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...

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...

Last autumn the European Commission launched the European Semester 2017 by publishing the: Annual Growth Survey 2017; Brussels, 16.11.2016 COM(2016) 725 final (16 pages) The Annual Growth Survey (AGS) offered a summary of the Commission’s priorities at EU level and the need for action at the national level in order to promote investment, structural reforms and responsible public finances in 2017 and beyond. However, the AGS did not mention individual countries. Against the broad AGS...

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...

With the EU27 national leaders busy reflecting on the future of the European Union ahead of the 25 March 2017 Rome declaration , where are the possible obstacles to sufficient reforms in the light of the challenges?   European Parliament debate On 1 March 2017, the same day the Juncker Commission launched the White Paper on the future of Europe , the European Parliament plenary debated the challenges and scenarios, here related in Finnish . The EPP Group greeted the discussion paper, and the...

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...

In the blog entries Evidence-based European market reforms? and   Services in EU single market strategy , we saw that the analytical staff working document underpinning the reforms was meant to be used in parallel with the condensed single market communication: A Single Market Strategy for Europe - Analysis and Evidence; Brussels, 28.10.2015 SWD(2015) 202 final (108 pages) Upgrading the Single Market: more opportunities for people and business; Brussels, 28.10.2015 COM(2015) 550 final (22...

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...

Here is a script for a talk that I gave at the Finnish Pavilion at the Shanghai Expo in an event organized by Helsinki Education and Research Area (HERA). It presents a summary of research that we have been coducting over the past few years in this area. --- Talk: Ubiquitous and Social Media Good afternoon ladies and gentlemen. I want to talk to you today about how the concepts such as “publishing”, “social interaction”, “participation”, “mobile and ubiquitous”meet and how their...

A report from Behavior, Energy and Climate Change conference, Sacramento, CA November 2008 European perspective into North American policies This year Behavior, Energy and Climate Change, or BECC, is organized for the second time. The conference has attracted more 600 visitors, mostly US and Canadian, single participants in many European and even African countries, relatively few from Asia. Focus is on US, particularly west coast, but the global state-of-the-art is well transmitted. BECC is not...

Kirjoituksessa EU:n sosiaalinen markkinatalous näimme Lissabonin sopimuksen tuoneen uuden määritelmän, mutta mistä se sinne tuli?   Sopimus Euroopan perustuslaista Euroopan unionin tarkoitusta koskevat ilmaukset “erittäin kilpailukykyinen sosiaalinen markkinatalous” sekä tehtävä “edistää yhteiskunnallista oikeudenmukaisuutta ja sosiaalista suojelua” periytyivät Lissabonin sopimukseen perustuslaillisen sopimuksen I-3 artiklan 3 kohdasta ( Sopimus Euroopan perustuslaista EUVL...

Englannin kielen sekä brittiläisen median kautta saarivaltion keskustelu Euroopan unionista vaikuttaa laajasti sekä Euroopassa että Amerikassa,  innoittaen lähinnä hajautus- ja jarrutusliikkeitä.   Toki Britanniasta löytyy myös laadukkaita tiedotusvälineitä, huippuyliopistoja, päteviä tutkijoita ja osaavia ajatuspajoja. Kiitollisena monista hyvistä raporteista mainitsisin mielelläni tässä yhteydessä ylähuoneen EU-valiokunnan, vaikka olen joutunut miettimään lordienkin...

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. Asialistalla on mm. esitys valtuuksista hallitukselle 1 milj. oman osakkeen hankkimisesta (myös suunnattu hankkiminen mahdollinen. Huom!) ja osinkoesitys 0,01 euroa/osake. Yhtiön tulos viime tilikaudella oli 0,231 M€ ja liikevaihto 18,4 M€. Yhtiöhän on nimestään huolimatta sijoitusyhtiö, jonka...

The Venetian Alternative. The current centre-left government of Finland has brought into national focus an ugly beast that has already raised its head globally. The apparent unwillingness to accept change of the noughties is in stark contrast to the breakneck pace of technological development and social change of the 1990's, and indeed the latter half of the 20th century - although I'll have to go by the words of wiser authors on anything preceding the 90's. Are we returning to the same...

Tajusin tässä, etten ole aikoihin postaillut mitään hiusjuttuja! Tai siis jossei noita iän ikuisia hiustenlähtöjuttuja nyt lasketa. Ihan siis normaaleita hiusjuttuja :D Edellisestä kampaamokäynnistä alkaa olla pian jo kolme kuukautta ja se on mulle todella pitkä aika. Olen jo vuosikaudet käynyt kampaajalla suunnilleen 2kk välein, tietty välillä on ollut tämmöisiä pidempiä välejä, mutta noin pääpiirteittäin. Eipä tässä kotona homehtuessa toisaalta ole samalla tavalla...

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...




Mirrorball in Flames -

This is a meaningful way to begin something new. Some seem to have an intuition that excessive freedom of a human being results in deaths and misery; own, or those of others. Such freedom rarely goes by the name of liberty. I shall paint the devil on the wall (a Finnish saying, which refers to being too hasty to presume something bad and, as a consequence, asking for it to happen), and it may be that I like what I see. The lonely figure of a wolf intrigues most of us. In Europe it has been...

Finland is a funny market. Home of Nokia, most interesting devices take a while to actually become available here. Three years ago, I got my Nexus One by help from a colleague based in UK. It served me well - while it had always been pretty short on memory and for a long time had not been too impressive in terms of speed, it had a nice form factor and, even by today's standards, a fairly good display. However, I had been planning to swap to something more up to date for a while. The Nexus 4...

Ilmatieteen laitos tutki etanolipitoisten polttoaineiden vaikutusta henkilöautojen pakokaasupäästöihin. Tutkimus osoitti, että alkoholipolttoaineiden käyttö pienentää sekä suoria hiukkaspäästöjä että ilmakehässä syntyviä päästöjä verrattuna bensiinipohjaisiin polttoaineisiin. Kuva: Michael Gaida Tutkimuksessa käytettiin kolmea eri polttoainetta (E10, E85 and E100) flex-fuel ajoneuvossa ja tutkittiin niiden vaikutusta ajoneuvon päästöihin. Tutkimuksessa havaittiin...

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...

Roundup. Last weekend Jaakko and his family threw up one of the most divine parties in a long time. The word party doesn't do it justice, because it had nothing to do with the usual cityside events, hosted in cramped apartments. It was a festival, in a beautiful garden, a historically laden milieu that was oh-so-fitting for the theme of the occasion, the 1950's. Good food, good drinks, good people - especially the latter. Most participants had really thought out their costumes, giving the...

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. Sponsored by the European Union, EU - raping your freedom of speech since 1992

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...

eastern european and former soviet cuisines were and are among my favorites ever since i lived in nyc. night visits to veselka are fondly remembered and just thinking about the little delis serving pierogis makes my mouth water. stuffed cabbage, blini, pelmeni, red peppers and smetana are all little pieces of heaven during the cold winter months. helsinki, surprisingly, does not offer ukrainian food. russian is also rare: there are less than five restaurants in town although blinis are served...
