Visits to national parliaments is the next section in the State of the Union 2017 brochure (108 pages), consisting of a one page presentation of how the 657 visits to national parliaments since the beginning of the Commission’s mandate on 1 November 2014 have been distributed across the EU member states (page 95). This is only the tip of the iceberg. We can go to the EU treaties and annual reports for insights into the relations between the European Commission and national parliaments...

There are no new visible updates on the European Commission’s State of the Union 2017 web page , still only in English. We turn to the State of the Union 2017 brochure , where the next section is called The European Solidarity Corps: One Year on (from page 89). By 2020: The aim is to have 100,000 young people taking part in the European Solidarity Corps.

Friday 22 September 2017, the think tank CEPS started a new series of Future of Europe meetings with a talk by Martin Selmayr , the head of president Juncker’s Cabinet.

The European Commission’s English only State of the Union 2017 web page does not offer any updates this morning, but it only means that we have to look elsewhere for important developments.

The blog post Hopkok om EU:s framtid directly or indirectly referred to 31 blog posts at Eurooppaoikeus (FI), Grahnblawg (SV) and Grahnlaw (EN), about the social market economy, the European social pillar, the future of Europe and EU reform. Since then, president Jean-Claude Juncker’s State of the Union 2017 (SOTEU) address has been the point of departure for ten more blog articles - almost all in English - so this could be a good time to publish a new compilation for future reference...

In addition to the letter of intent and roadmap(s) , the European Commission’s SOTEU web page offers us the State of the Union 2017 brochure , a booklet of 108 pages available only in English at this moment. Since the handy brochure is at least partly a compilation of documents published separately, some of the content is already available in other EU languages.

Today we use the press release Let’s make the most of the momentum to shape an ambitious future in order to look at how political groups in the European Parliament reacted to president Jean-Claude Juncker’s speech about the state of the European Union (SOTEU) and the future of Europe, especially with regard to EU reform. Manfred Weber , the leader of the European People’s Party (EPP) Group, hailed the European way of life in speech and press release, promising to renew the European social...

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...

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...

The blog entry Second Report on the State of the Energy Union offered a glance at the state of play until 1 February 2017. Energy Union strategy First, a reminder of the points of departure for the Energy Union.
