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...

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...

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...

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...

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...

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...

King's Cup -

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 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...

As both Sweden and Denmark failed to finish in top spot of their groups to reach the World Cup finals automatically. They both still do have a chance of being in Russia next June though as they now both have home and away fixtures after the World Cup play off draw to see if they […]

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...

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...

An international group of supporters of Khadijat and Malik Gataev as well as of their children have organized the film festival in Vilnius to raise public awareness in Lithuania for human rights and to remind politicians of Lithuania about the obligation to comply to the norms of the membership in the European Union. Pirjo Honkasalo is going to screen “Three Rooms of Melancholia”, and other directors present will be Aki Kaurismäki (Finland), Arto Halonen (Finland), Andrey Nekrasov...

Arrests. Threats. Raided offices and confiscated computers. A closed court case with activities surrounding it strongly implying there is no way the accused will be treated fairly. The police and the authorities not respecting the rule of law. And all this has to do with Chechnya again, though surprisingly not in Russia but in the European Union. The following is written for the European Court by the Lithuanian Human Rights workers. Best of luck to you and your case! As for the kids in the...

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)...

STUFF ON MY MIND -

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...

München (Munich) Obama has certainly started with Big Changes. And Joe Biden, now travelling in Munich, is seemingly backing up the President and moving forward with the new American agenda. According to a news release from Russia, " European media reported that Biden may voice Obama’s idea on a radical – up to 80% – slashing of U.S. and Russian nuclear arsenals. " Gosh. Many are still sceptical, of course, wondering if Obama can really change things -- will he be able to, is he a puppet...

Love & some verses -

One down, two to go! Psykologian koe on nyt takanapäin, edessä vielä CEES (eli Central & Eastern European Studies) ja ranska. Koe tuntui menevän ihan hyvin, vaikka olikin kyllä vaikeampi kuin edellisjakson vastine. Kahdeksastakymmenestä monivalintakysymyksestä ehkä kymmentä piti miettiä hiukan pidempään, minkä pitäisi kaiken järjen mukaan olla hyvä merkki (?). Esseekysymyksestä onkin sitten vaikeampi sanoa, peukut pystyyn ja kesäkuun tuloksia odotellessa! Seuraavien päivien...




Ekofokus -

Laaja kansainvälinen tutkijaryhmä, jossa myös SYKE oli edustettuna, on osoittanut ensimmäistä kertaa Euroopan laajuisesti selvän yhteyden tulvien ja ilmaston muuttumisen välillä. Ennätyksellisen kattavaan ja monipuoliseen havaintoaineistoon pohjautuneen tutkimuksen mukaan tulvat ovat viime vuosikymmeninä aikaistuneet selvästi tietyillä alueilla Euroopassa ja myöhentyneet toisaalta tietyillä alueilla. Tutkimusartikkeli, jonka laatimisessa hyödynnettiin myös Suomen hydrologisia...

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...

PDF   |   Sähkökirja (mobi)   |   Virallinen julkaisu   |   Valmistujaispuhe   |   In English Vuonna 2010 haastattelin kolmeakymmentä nomadia, paikkariippumatonta matkailijaa jotka vaeltelevat maailman turuja ilman kotia, pysyvää työpaikkaa ja paikkaan sidottua ystäväpiiriä. Tästä projektista syntyivät yleistajuiset tietokirjat Free as a Global Nomad ja Elämäni nomadina sekä akateeminen väitös, jota puolustin Tilburgin yliopistossa Hollannissa 18.6.2014. Väitöskirja...

I noticed some FB updates of some BC friends going to Amsterdam that they were having some major delays. The flight delays due to the volcanic activity in Iceland, and it turns out it is covered pretty well on the European medias (of which BBC kind of should be most neutral). US medias over here? I don't feel like turning the TV on (it just feels so wrong during the day). Newspapers - the only ones on analog paper I occasionally get would be The Onion and even that maybe once a week. So, my...

Ibland träffar man på de mest häpnadsväckande tankegångar på webben. Det var min som som tipsade om följande resonemang på en blogg kallad ShelleyTheRepulicanCom: "Unlike Windows, which is a mature commercial product which is normally included with every new computer, Linux is given away. Now it may not sound like much of a problem, after all there is very little profit in merely giving a product away. This would be certainly true were in not for the Linux project's seductive Marxist...

outrageous outings -

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...

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...

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...

Do leaders and citizens in Europe always have to fail to rise to the occasion, when Hobbes returns? This time around, does the transformation from being the ball kicked around to constructive player demand too much from enlightened 21st century Europeans? In my article Myopia or Utopia? I try to sketch the democratic change between these imaginary countries for the leaders of the institutions and the member states of the European Union, as well as for its citizens.    In New Europe’s...
