Käväsin Lontoossa viikonloppuna, näytin vähän paikkoja porukoille. Piti jättää monta neulegraffitia, mutta kun kaitsettavana oli kuuden hengen seurue ei aikaa oikein ollut. Lähtöaamuna kiireessä vein pari hotellin lähelle. Ehkä ensi kerralla sitten on enemmän aikaa. ;) Earls' Court Roadin ja West Cromwell Roadin risteyksessä. I visited London last weekend. I was going to leave more knit graffities, but I was "looking after" group of six, so no time to do own things. I left these...

The Juncker Commission has been strategic and steadfast in its work, matter of fact in its communication. In the blog post Commission Work Programme 2018 we looked at the CWP 2018 communication, which offers a State of the Union 2017 (SOTEU) update, useful references and an overview of the coming initiatives: Commission Work Programme 2018: An agenda for a more united, stronger and more democratic Europe; Strasbourg, 24.10.2017 COM(2017) 650 final However, for this EU “Navigation App” for...

The web page for the Commission Work Programme 2018 (CWP 2018) offers access to the communication, the five official annexes and additional documents, but at this stage mainly in the three internal working languages of the Commission (English, French and German). At this point in time, the language choice is no wider if we access the official documents through the legal portal Eur-Lex. However, let us fetch the exact reference there: Commission Work Programme 2018: An agenda for a more united...

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...

After the blog post Commission Work Programme 2018 looked at the CWP 2018 communication, the entry New and REFIT initiatives in Commission Work Programme 2018 glanced at the first two annexes, with ordinary legislative and political initiatives plus future of Europe proposals in the first annex, and REFIT   proposals in the second annex, but widening through a new communication on better regulation , an accompanying SWD(2017) 675 and a fresh REFIT Scoreboard . Here we look at the priority...

It is possible to find overviews in Reader’s Digest style of the most notable Future of Europe initiatives . The annotated version of president Jean-Claude Juncker’s State of the Union 2017 address, with the sub-heading Proposals for the future of Europe that can be implemented on the basis of the Lisbon Treaty , demonstrates how the flexibilities of the EU treaties can be used to improve the effectiveness of European Union action, without embarking on a formal process of treaty reform...

The Elysée website of the French president seems to offer a single language choice: French. It may be an excellent reminder of the importance and glories of the French language, but for a president keen on proselytising in Europe it has some drawbacks. I checked Macron’s Initiative pour l’Europe speech many times for possible translations I could mention to the readers of my blogs, but only found the same English summary of A sovereign, united and democratic Europe with mainly the concrete...

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...

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...

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...

The struggles of Lusophone Africa have inspired me for a long time - don't ask me why, as I don't really speak Portuguese and have very limited contact to that part of the world. My favourite freedom fighter of all times has been Amilcar Cabral of Guinea-Bissau and Cape Verde - the lucidity of his writing is amazing and many of the issues he raises are all but solved yet. A lot of his work has been translated into English, and my favourite text is an essay called "The Weapon of Theory". If one...

Kunta- ja aluetason näkökulmasta merkittävää on, että sääntökirjassa viitataan hallintotasojen yhteisiin ilmastotoimiin ja kehotetaan valtioita lisäämään yhteistyötä alue- ja paikallisviranomaisten kanssa.

--> We toured around The Black Sea through those former Eastern Bloc countries we hadn't visited yet. One of the motivators for this trip was that Belarus had given up its outrageous visa fee of around 60 euro per person. Now the only nuisance left is that in order to get an entry stamp, you have to fly in and out of the country and pay for a so-called "medical insurance" at the border. While the insurance costs only a couple of euros, it still feels stupid to pay for nothing. The capital of...

Picture: Airbus A350 In October 2004, European Union and USA filed law suits against each other in the World Trade Organisation accusing both that the governments give their domestic aircraft manufacturers illegal subsidies. The case is the largest the WTO has handled and is expected to last several years. The two giant aircraft builders are battling to dominate the market of commercial airplanes. Boeing has been the historical leader but Airbus has hit back and last year passed its rival in...

2006 may well be the year of dawn of a new era for business aviation, which has been anticipated ever since William Lear Jr. rolled out his first LearJet-23 in October 1963. Although successful (but accident-prone in the beginning: 10 of the first 100 produced were destroyed), Lear Jet was clearly meant for very rich people, who would fly from their New York, London, Moscow or Jeddah luxury homes to equally luxurious villas in Florida or French Riviera, before boarding a luxury yacht for a day...

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...
