This was a long and an interesting journey. I have contemplated crocheting a cardigan for myself for a very long time and I am not sure just how many times I have started one. Every single one has ended up in a frog pond and this was a close call too. There were many issues along the way, I had doubts until the very end. My main concern all the time was the drape; what if I end up having a very stiff piece of clothing. I did a swatch but as we know, swatches don’t always tell the whole truth...

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...

Yesterday, I gave a talk at SPLASH Onward in Vancouver introducing my essay “Concept analysis in programming language research: Done well it is all right” [ACM DL] [Author’s PDF] [presentation slides (PDF)]. Both reader comments earlier and some of the questions after my presentation leads me to think that I was not quite clear enough … Continue reading "I am emphatically not anti-empiricist"

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...

In the European Commission’s so called (so called, because it did not contain concrete proposals) White Paper on the Future of Europe: Reflections and scenarios for the EU27 by 2025; Brussels, 1.3.2017 COM(2017) 2025 final , the proto-executive promised to contribute to the discussion by publishing five reflection papers: developing the social dimension of Europe; deepening the Economic and Monetary Union, on the basis of the Five Presidents' Report of June 2015; harnessing globalisation; the...

Football in Finland -

It’s a question I’ve heard quite often recently, whether it be down the pub, at work or at a football match. People want to know, but for me it’s something I’ve always known and seem to know well in advance and when qualifying actually starts. More to point, the number of teams in the competition […]

In February and March I wrote a number of blog posts compiled in the entry EU social market economy and social pillar . It is time to register the progress of the social dimension and the social pillar of the European Union, but let us first return to the public consultation after a reminder of one of the aims of the EU, as laid down in Article 3(3) TEU: a highly competitive social market economy, aiming at full employment and social progress . While we are at it, why not recall the horizontal...

Yesterday we looked at the European Union asking EU citizens , without the focus, resources or intent to act on the feedback, either on the fundamental issue of ownership (democracy) or more specific questions of individual policies. I wonder if the democratic conventions proposed by the French president Emmanuel Macron have been designed to be more effective channels of citizens’ political will than the public relations part of the Commission’s Future of Europe project, including the...

Serendipity is stumbling across a Facebook presentation of Mathew Lowry’s blog post The limits of public participation in policy . I had tried to explore how the future presidential candidate Emmanuel Macron started presenting and returning to the idea of democratic conventions and if president Macron’s Sorbonne speech had clarified the working of these democratic conventions . Macron had painted the democratic conventions as an essential tool to relaunch the European project. However, they...

"Why are you taking photos of books?" has been a question I have heard several times after I started actively posting to my bookstagram account. For me, it feels like a no-brainer to take pictures of books -- they are beautiful and I spend a lot of time with them. I collect them, I fall in love with them, I entertain myself with them. And most importantly, I love sharing my love for books with book lovers. The bookstagram community has blown up massively in the last couple of years and it has...

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...

After the latest State of the Union (SOTEU) 2017 blog posts looking at EU citizens, reform and future and Citizens’ Dialogues ,  we recall that public opinion - despite the clunky Eurobarometer questions - seems to have been ahead of the EU27 heads of state or government, at least until the openings in the Commission president Jean-Claude Juncker’s SOTEU address SPEECH/17/3165 and the French president Emmanuel Macron’s Sorbonne speech ( English summary ) gave the leaders some impetus...

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...

Our customary check of the European Commission’s State of the Union 2017 web page , reveals no visible updates since yesterday and the language selection remains one out of twenty-four: English only. We return to the State of the Union 2017 brochure , where the next section is Citizens’ Dialogues (from page 97). According to the brochure (page 98), there had been 312 Citizens’ Dialogues in all in the member states since the start of the Juncker Commission; of these 129 on the future of...

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. To achieve this ambition, the Commission proposed in May 2017 to give the European Solidarity Corps a budget of more than €340 million for...

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. Digital tax and Tallinn summit Yesterday the Commission outlined a path towards fair taxation in the digital economy: press release IP/17/3305 , questions and answers MEMO/17/3341 and vice-president Valdis Dombrovskis SPEECH/17/3402 .

The State of the Union 2017 web page of the European Commission offers us materials and some updates concerning policy initiatives relating to the Commission Work Programme (CWP) 2018. In addition, a few novelties on the economic front are worth mentioning. Yesterday the Commission vice-president Valdis Dombrovskis spoke about a proposal for a stronger and more integrated financial supervision for the Capital Markets Union (CMU) SPEECH/17/3365 , complemented by a press release IP/17/3308 ...
